File under: Akashic’s Christmas list — a sweatshirt that is so very Black Sheep, aka our YA imprint launching in February with Changers Book One: Drew by T Cooper & Allison Glock-Cooper and Game World by C.J. Farley!
(of course you can wear this sweatshirt by Kin Ship if you buy it from Modcloth…or we could wear it if you buy it for us…)
Robert Antoni and Lucy Corin appeared together at City Lights Books in October of this year, but if you couldn’t make it to San Francisco to see them, never fear!
