Acclaimed Dystopian YA Author Jo Treggiari Publishes Short Memoir Piece in Support of Local Charity
Halifax, NS (October 9, 2012) — Fierce Ink Press Co-Op Ltd. publishes its second Fierce Short, Love You Like Suicide, by author Jo Treggiari. Available online October 9, Love You Like Suicide is a story about love, friendship, drug abuse and self-discovery.
“Although I am many years away from being a teenager now, I still remember the intensity of my life then,” Treggiari says. “Everything felt new and potent and important: the choices I made, the life-long friendships I forged, the mistakes I made. I think that it is during those years, especially for me the ones between age 17 and 21, that I was really discovering who I was and what I truly wanted and what mattered.”
Twenty percent of proceeds from all sales of Love You Like Suicide will go to Heartwood Centre in Halifax. Treggiari chose Heartwood as her charity “because they work with kids in the community, and help them find their individuality, their passions, and also their place within society.”
