Shannon Lee Alexander Returns to Kids Ink!

On Saturday, July 9th, beginning at 1pm, Kids Ink will host a launch party for Shannon Lee Alexander and her latest book, Life After Juliet.

In Love and Other Unknown Variables, Charlotte Finch tore through life with the abandon that come from knowing she won’t be around long enough to clean it up. Life After Juliet focuses on Charlotte’s friend Becca Hanson and her effort to pick up the pieces Charlotte left behind. Separated from everyone she knew and facing down her junior year of high school, Becca retreats to her favorite place: books. She’s so intent on reading that she almost fails to notice her semi-forced enrollment in the school’s Drama Club, or the two boys hovering for her attention. The only think Becca wants to do is withdraw into worlds of fictional characters, but instead she must establish a role of her own. 

Alexander is a native Hoosier, and taught for a number of years in middle school as a language arts teacher. Her own book addiction produced a lot of material to build the character of Becca. The loss of a friend to cancer in 2009 confronted her with a lot of things, and perhaps the most profound is a belief that there is no such thing as “too late”. There’s no deadline in life, according to Shannon, only a responsibility to act on one’s drive when they can. Alexander is a wife, mother of two, and caretaker of a very fuzzy dog.

This event is free and open to the public.
