The Day the Falls Stood Still: some links

Today is the release of Cathy Marie Buchanan's The Day the Falls Stood Still, a wonderful historical novel based in the real history of Niagara Falls, Ontario. My review will be up a little later today (quick preview: I loved it!) but for the moment here are a few interesting items about the book. Also, check out the sidebar for a chance to look inside the book, thanks to HarperCollins.

Cathy will be on a blog tour for the next month or so. She will be contributing a guest post here tomorrow, about her use of libraries in writing this heavily researched novel. Don't miss it! Here are her other stops, if you want to follow along with her essays and interviews:
