Atwood printing her new book on paper made from straw and recycled paper

Margaret Atwood is printing a special edition of 300 copies of her newest sci-fi book In Other Worlds on Second Harvest paper–paper that is made from 36% straw and 64% recycled paper. The paper is new (and at this point not mass-manufactured), so the cost of each book will be $100. But it’s such an interesting and smart move–to help save trees AND the costs that ebooks have on our environment.

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
