Join author Marcia Strykowski to discuss her middle grade book Call Me Amy. Here is a description of the book from her website:

"For 13-year-old Amy Henderson, 1973 has been a lonely and uneventful year in her small Maine fishing village. With the help of a wounded seal pup, she gets to know Craig, who slinks around in an oversized army jacket. A new law against handling wild marine mammals brings suspense to the story. Where can they keep Pup until he heals? Their only hope is to trust Miss Cogshell, an elderly woman keeping to herself amidst jeers from the local kids, who catches them sneaking Pup into her woodshed in the middle of the night. Throughout the book, small challenges prepare Amy for her greatest one of all. A challenge that leads her to discover that everyone, herself included, has a voice worth hearing.  For readers aged 8 & up. Published by Luminis Books, 2013."

Copies of the book can be picked up in the children's room beginning on June 21. After discussing the book, participants will also make a craft related to the story.
