Ann M. Martin will visit the Indianapolis Public Library’s Glendale location in partnership with Kids Ink Children’s Bookstore on Saturday, January 13th, 2018. Beginning at 2 pm, Ann will co-host a conversation about her works and process, answer audience questions, and sign copies of her books.

As the author of the Babysitter’s Club series, which has been adapted into graphic novels and television shows, she’s helped raise a generation of women. She won a Newbery Honor award for A Corner of the Universe, a novel about one girl’s relationship with her savant uncle. She lives in upstate New York, and is visiting Indianapolis to celebrate the release of the paperback edition of her latest book, Rain Reign.

Rain Reign focuses on Rose Howard, a girl on the autistic spectrum who finds comfort and stability in homonyms – words spelled or pronounced the same but with different meanings. Rose’s dog is her best friend and primary point of contact with the world, a role so important that Rose gave the dog a name with two homonyms: Rain (rein, reign). During the night of a terrible storm, Rose’s single father lets Rain out of the house, and by the next morning she’s nowhere to be found. To rescue her, Rose steps away from the rest of her habits and routines to brave the woods and bring Rain home.

We will have a selection of Martin’s backlist on hand for sale, and will also work with the library to lead activities that’ll make this event that much more special.
