Simon & Schuster Canada to Publish New Poetry Collection by Rupi Kaur

Toronto, July 11, 2017 – Simon & Schuster Canada announces the release of the sun and her flowers by Canadian author Rupi Kaur on October 3, 2017.  The book is the second collection of poetry and illustrations by Rupi, whose first collection, milk and honey, was a #1 New York Times and international bestseller and has sold nearly 2 million copies worldwide.

“I feel beyond excited and blessed to take readers on this new journey with me,” said Rupi. “This new book has had so much heart poured into it. I have been working on this vision for three years and now it’s come to life.”

Divided into five chapters, this highly anticipated collection guides readers on a journey of wilting, falling, rooting, rising, and blooming in a celebration of love in all its forms.  It is a vibrant and transcendent journey about growth and healing, ancestry and honouring one’s roots, expatriation and rising up to find a home within yourself.  Designed by Rupi in her signature style with a keen eye for elegance and simplicity, the sun and her flowers continues Rupi’s exploration of themes of love, loss, trauma, healing, and femininity.

A breakout literary phenomenon, milk and honey continues to captivate readers nearly two years after its release. It has remained on The New York Times bestseller list for more than 64 consecutive weeks and has catapulted to international bestseller lists as well.  Her transformative poems and drawings deliver a message of hope, healing, and empowerment to readers around the globe, as milk and honey has been translated into more than 24 languages.  In addition to writing and illustrating, Rupi performs her poetry to capacity audiences and has received international acclaim.
