September Williams Author of Chasing Mercury Leaves McMillan Pronoun/Chaos + the perfect Image.

September Williams Author of Chasing Mercury Leaves McMillan Pronoun/Chaos + the perfect Image.

There may be some bumps in availability of Chasing Mercury over the next three days but it will be short term. Many of  you know that my McMillan/Pronoun  book seller  is shutting down its ebook platform. It's a long story but I am now forced to distribute Chasing Mercury to Amazon, only through Amazon -- instead of a third party book seller. In the process I had to remove all the sales material and advertising and re-enter it with a new ISBN and ASIN -- same book different ID numbers. In that process many of the links on Amazon using the earlier ISBN/ASIN no longer get you to Chasing Mercury -- just look again for the new one.

Green Action ( greenaction.org) enters its 3rd decade of coalition building and stalwart support  for environmental justice, health and against environmental racism and classism in Bay View Hunters Point, Kettleman City, Richmond and in coalition with so many others struggling for Environmental Justice.  If you could bear to make it to the end of my ebook or audiobook  Chasing Mercury - You would notice that the last point in the final “Authors Acknowledgements” reads, “A portion of the proceeds from Chasing Mercury go to: http://freegrassy.net and also to http://greenaction.org/?page_id=181”

September Williams Author of Chasing Mercury, the Amazing People of Grassy Narrows First Nation Prove Movements Matter and so Does the Minamata Convention on Mercury


While I was walking to the TV Cove today, I thought about the good news for a change -- and we have some. On Wednesday, under intense pressure from Grassy Narrows First Nation in South West Ontario -- the region where much of Chasing Mercury is focused--and their supporters, the Canadian government committed to build a Mercury Home in Grassy Narrows. That is a clear recognition of Canadian Minamata disease on both the environment and the people affected by pollution from mercury. this is the result over 40 years of struggle-- Movements Matter.

Copy of September Williams Author of Chasing Mercury--Home for the Winter

Like geese head to their preferred home for the winter - so do I. Chicago has been good to Chasing Mercury and its origins in the waters of the earth.  I've also been able to spend time with colleagues and mentors who span over 30 years and taught me much of the science in CM. However, it has not escaped me ( nor my body)  that I have boarded and debarked from 20 separate aircrafts since this past May here in the USA, Canada, France, Portugal and Switzerland.

September Williams Author of Chasing Mercury explains how Forest and Sicily's Characters developed.

Q. How did you chose the characteristic in  the main characters of Chasing Mercury?

A .Sicily and Forest? I wanted the people in Chasing Mercury to look like and act like the people at my dinner table -- a mixed bag while--raising consciousness about environmental injustice and justice. Then I remembered how I became committed to those issues not through science and medicine but through the works of concerned photographers like W.E. Eugene Smith and Donald McCullum. Most importantly I remembered the unlikely superheroes  I  knew when I was crossing over from adolescent to woman
