Spotlight on Daniel Lafrance

We would like to take the time to acknowledge the great works created by some of our family members. This spotlight is on Daniel Lafrance who recently finished and launched a graphic novel called "War Brothers" with Author Sharon E.McKay.

" The searing story of a child soldier.
When fourteen-year-old Jacob is brutally abducted and forced to become a child soldier, he struggles to hold on to his sanity and the will to escape.

Daniel Lafrance’s striking artwork and the poignant, powerful text capture the very essence of life as a child soldier. Readers will never forget the experiences of this young boy struggling to survive, unsure who to trust, afraid of succumbing to madness, and above all, desperate to get to freedom. In the end, Jacob engineers a daring escape.

This graphic novel is based on the acclaimed novel of the same title, winner of a 2009 Arthur Ellis award. The author spent time in Uganda and based this story on real-life accounts of the horrors inflicted on child soldiers and their victims. This is a story of unthinkable violence, but also one of hope, courage, friendship, and family. "

Congrats Daniel!!

"War Brothers captures the terror, poignancy, and hope of children forced to join a brutal rebel army. In the best tradition of graphic novel, this one brings an immediacy and power to a story that will sear itself into the mind of every reader."
