Author Event: Mary Amato
Award-winning Author Amato will read from her new novel about young songwriters, give tips about writing books and songs, and lead a ukulele sing-along. Bring your voice (and your uke if you have one)!
When the coolest girl in the class invites you to her exclusive after-school club, how can you say no?
Even if it means skipping out on Songwriting Club? Even if she’s always been too popular to give you the time of day? Even if she asks you to paint the walls and serve the tea…?
Soon Lucy McGee realizes she’s been tricked into becoming mean girl Scarlett Tandy’s errand girl—and she’s getting in trouble for skipping her after-school activities. Things get complicated as she tries to balance school, friends, frenemies, songwriting, and family expectations. Clearly Lucy has to strike back! But it turns out that singing and playing your ukulele—and having loads of fun doing it—are the best revenge. Features 3 of Lucy’s songs, and a sneak peek of Book Two, Sing With Me, Lucy McGee!
