What if your life depended on being a good liar? New York City Author Maryann Macdonald discusses and signs her wonderful new middle-grade novel, Odette's Secrets. This unique book, written in verse, shares the real-life story of Odette Meyers, a child survivor of the Nazi occupation of Paris during World War II. As a young girl, Odette lived a secret life in the French countryside in order to escape the Holocaust. This gentle introduction to a dark period in history is for ages 10 and up.

Maryann will read from her book and give a presentation about Meyers, who eventually became a university professor, poet and activist. This event is free and open to all ages.
