An author with roots in Mason, Illinois is debuting her new novel “DIY High” in July.
Amanda L Webster’s third novel is about a teenager who is dealing with an abusive, absentee father and a mother, who has fallen into a prescription drug addiction. Added to that is the obstacles the young woman has to deal with as a high schooler.
“I wanted to write a story that takes place in small-town America in a rural area of the type that is often overlooked by the big publishers and the literary world in general. I wanted to write a story about people like me and the people I grew up around,” Webster said. “I see a lot of kids left behind in the educational system because they don’t fit the type that many educators are trained to educate.”
Local author, Amanda L. Webster, will host a book launch party and book reading Thursday, August 1, 2019 from 7 PM – 9 PM at Ryburn Place. The author will read from her new novel, DIY High. Copies of this and other books by this author will be available for purchase and signing.
