Description

On February 14, 2013 author Sheree Fitch took part in One Billion Rising, a worldwide dance to end violence against women and girls. The event brought back memories of a hot June day when, at the age of fifteen, she lied to her parents about her plans for the day and it led to the most terrifying incident of her life. In I Died on a Hot June Day, Fitch recounts her harrowing experience and the circumstances building up to it. In the end she also shows that it’s possible to run from the dark and eventually dance into the light.

About the author

Sheree Fitch's first two books, Toes in My Nose (1987) and Sleeping Dragons All Around (1989), launched her career as a poet, rhymster, and a “kind of Canadian female Dr. Seuss.” Fitch has won almost every major award for Canadian childrenÕs literature since then, including the 2000 Vicky Metcalf Award for a Body of Work Inspirational to Canadian Children. She has over twenty-five books to her credit, including her bestselling and critically praised adult novel, Kiss the Joy as it Flies (2008). Fitch's home base is the East Coast of Canada.
