Description : Michael Barakiva's Hold My Hand is a funny, smart, relatable take on the joy and challenges of teenage love, the boundaries of forgiveness, and what it really means to be honest. Alek Khederian thinks about his life B.E. and A.E.: Before Ethan and After Ethan. Before Ethan, Alek was just an average Armenian-American kid with a mess of curly dark hair, grades not nearly good enough for his parents, and no idea of who he was or what he wanted. After he got together with Ethan, Alek was a new man. Stylish. Confident. (And even if he wasn’t quite marching in LGBTQ parades), Gay and Out and Proud. With their six-month anniversary coming up, Alek and Ethan want to do something special to celebrate. Like, really special. Like, the most special thing two people in love can do with one another. But Alek’s not sure he’s ready for that. And then he learns something about Ethan that may not just change their relationship, but end it. Alek can't bear the thought of finding out who he'd be P.E.: Post-Ethan. But he also can't forgive or forget what Ethan did. Luckily, his best friend Becky and madcap Armenian family are there to help him figure out whether it’s time to just let Ethan go, or reach out and hold his hand.

Description : Since the beginning of time, the hand has taken us beyond ourselves. It has played a unique role in the rapport between humans. It greets. It recognizes, assists, comforts and reassures. It caresses, prays, blesses, gives, teaches and leads the way. A veritable extension of the heart itself, the hand is the privileged link in the art of emotional communication. Without fanfare, it is silent - a representative of the unsaid. The hand in the Bernard Poulin, Dominic Bercier story 'Hold My Hand' speaks of the rite of passage as experienced and shared by one generation and another. Interestingly, the proffered hand described in this story is reminiscent of the relationship between the author and the illustrator. Poulin and Bercier met several years ago at the Centre d'Excellence Artistique De La Salle. The former was a professional visual artist, the latter a student. From that time forward, the author has been mentor to the younger illustrator. In essence, 'Hold My Hand' is a wondrous intergenerational collaboration. And, for the benefit of us all, let us hope it is not the last such project between Poulin and Bercier. From the Afterword by Jean-Claude Bergeron Founder and First Coordinator Centre d'Excellence Artistique De La Salle, Ottawa, Canada.
