September Williams - Chasing Mercury (Sausalito Store)

Saturday, May 19, 2018 - 4:00pm

An epileptic Black ballerina and a Powwow dancer whistleblower journalist meet in the Montreal Airport. They are both scheduled to perform in Berlin, 1973 Cold War Berlin. During the transatlantic crossing their love evolves. On a long lay over in Zurich, he stuns her by depositing many hundreds of thousands of dollars into his Swiss bank account, to which he adds her name with no true explanation. Is she an accomplice or is this just love in the time of mercury poisoning? Chasing Mercury is a soaring cross cultural, romantic-suspense-memoir, about families devoted to human and environmental rights. The novel honors the 2017 ratification of the United Nations Minamata Convention on Mercury, and its going into force as international law. Chasing Mercury is the first of a series of three books in the Chasing Mercury Toxic Trilogy.
