Samantha Rideout The People Who StayThis Sunday, July 3, from 2:00 to 4:00 pm, Flanker Press will celebrate the launch of Samantha Rideout’s latest novel, The People Who Stay at the Book Worm in Gander Newfoundland (Fraser Mall – 230 Airport Boulevard).

The People Who Stay is the second novel for Rideout, who lives in New York City but was born and raised in an outport community in Central Newfoundland. It is the story of Sylvia Pride, who reluctantly returns to rural Newfoundland for her cousin’s wedding after an extended stint in the big city. Described as a “tale of love and redemption,” it is also the story of a woman at a crossroads and perhaps in need of a little down-home help.
