Christine Day
Christine Day will be visiting Third Place Books for her upcoming book launch event on Friday, October 11, 2019, 6:00pm Third Place Books, upper level town center, intersection Bothell and Ballinger Way NE, Lake Forest Park.

Christine Day lives in the Pacific Northwest and grew up in the Seattle area.

I Can Make This Promise (suitable for Grades 3-7) follows a young girl named Edie, as she and her friends discover a box in her attic, filled with letters and photographs from a mysterious woman who shares her name. 

It will appeal to readers who enjoy family secrets, curious artists, or (somewhat) lesser-known histories. It’s emotional and educational. It covers topics and demographics that are rarely seen in contemporary children’s literature. And it’s ultimately a story about hope. And love. And belonging.

“Day’s novel brings an accessible, much-needed perspective about the very real consequences of Indigenous children being taken from their families and Native Nations. 

"The absence of one’s tribal community, loss of culture and lack of connection to relatives have ripple effects for generations.” —Traci Sorell (Cherokee Nation), award-winning author of We Are Grateful: Otsaliheliga

Christine Day (Upper Skagit) grew up in Seattle, nestled between the sea, the mountains, and the pages of her favorite books. She holds a master’s degree from the University of Washington, where she created a thesis on Coast Salish weaving traditions. I Can Make This Promise is her first novel.
