Congratulations to Sue Williams – her memoir, Ready to Come About, is doing great!

Hi, Brian.
Don't know if you saw it or not, but my memoir, Ready to Come About (Dundurn Press) which, as you know, is endorsed by Miriam Toews, was recently chosen as a 2019 "Summer Read" by the Globe and Mail! 
Not only that, it's now a staff pick at Guelph Indigo and a BQHR (Bookshelf's Quite Highly Rated) book at The Bookshelf bookstore in Guelph. (See the tag in which they say my book is outselling Michelle Obama's! :-)  
So ... it's doing really well out of the gate, partly thanks to your amazingly practical and inspiring courses in creative writing early on.

Update: Ready to Come About has now been endorsed by four different bookstores and is a staff pick at two libraries. And it's on the roster of a few different book clubs and being considered for several others. So … yay!

Ready to Come About is available at bookstores and online here.
