Author's Series Talk by YA Historical Fiction Author, Michaela MacColl


The Putnam County Public Library announces a special visit by prominent YA historical fiction author, Michaela MacColl on Mon, Feb 8th, from 6 -7:30 pm . Michaela will give a talk on her book, The Revelation of Louisa May, followed by a book signing and sale. Michaela’s talk is part of DePauw School of Music’s Interdisciplinary Festival.
Michaela attended Vassar College and Yale University earning degrees in multi-disciplinary history. Her favorite stories are the ones she finds about the childhood experiences of famous people. She has written about a teenaged Queen Victoria (Prisoners in the Palace, Chronicle 2010) and Beryl Markham’s childhood (Promise the Night, Chronicle 2011). She is writing a literary mystery series for teens featuring so far a young Emily Dickinson in Nobody’s Secret (2013) and the Bronte sisters in Always Emily (2014), and has begun a new series with Boyd’s Mill/Highlights called Hidden Histories about odd events in America’s past. The first entry in the series is Rory’s Promise. Michaela lives in Westport CT with her husband, two teenaged daughters and three extremely large cats. 

About the book:“Louisa May Alcott can't believe it—her mother is leaving for the summer to earn money for the family and Louisa is to be in charge of the household. How will she find the time to write her stories, much less have any adventures of her own? But before long, Louisa finds herself juggling her temperamental father, a mysterious murder, a fugitive seeking refuge along the Underground Railroad, and blossoming love. Intertwining fact, fiction, and quotes from Little Women, Michaela MacColl has crafted another spunky heroine whose story will keep readers turning pages until the very end.” - www.michaelamaccoll.com
