Upcoming Event
Thursday, October 15, 2020 - 2:00pm

Lou Montgomery and her mother are musical performers with problems. They are scratching out a living performing in diners and cafes while living out of their car. Making things worse, Lou doesn’t like crowds, loud noises or singing in front of other people. This makes her feel different and worried that there is something seriously wrong with her. When an accident forces her to move in with wealthy relatives and rejoin school, she gets a chance to start over but her sensory processing disorder still haunts her. Can music be the key to her recovery?

Jamie Sumner will be joined in conversation with Rex Ogle, author of Free Lunch.

Jamie Sumner has written for the New York Times and The Washington Post as well as other publications, and she is the reviews editor at Literary Mama. She is also a mom to a son with cerebral palsy and she writes and speaks about disability in literature. She loves stories that celebrate the grit and beauty in all kids.

Rex Ogle is a part-time book editor and a full-time writer. He has worked for Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Scholastic, and Little Brown. His novel, Free Lunch, was the Winner of the 2020 YALSA Excellence in Nonfiction Award.
