Kerry Madden returns to City Lights from her home in Los Angeles on
Friday, July 11th at 6:00 P.M. to read from her new young adult novel,
entitled Jessie’s Mountain.
In this final novel in Madden’s trilogy about the Weems family of Maggie
Valley, Livy Two has run away to Nashville to begin a singing career and send
money back home. But when that dream is shattered, she finds solace in her
mother’s diary, which confides that Jessie once had a dream, too.
Madden, who has written for the American Girls franchise, has won wide
acclaim for these Maggie Valley novels, which appeal to readers of all ages. She
will read from the new book, take questions and comments, and autograph
books. Readers of all ages are invited to attend. Light refreshments will be
served. For more information, please call City Lights at 586-9499. (booksense)
