Happy Pub Day, Kristina McMorris!
We’re so excited this wonderful novel is now officially out in the world! Inspired by a heartbreaking newspaper photo, Sold on a Monday follows a Depression-era reporter who snaps a photograph of two children being sold on a farmhouse porch, leading to his big break – and consequences more devastating than he ever imagined.
The photo first appeared in The Vidette-Messenger in 1948 and, in a brief caption, claimed to exhibit the desperation of a family in Chicago. As a mom herself, Kristina wondered what could have possibly pushed a parent to that point. Possible answers to that question soon became the foundation of Sold on a Monday.
