Writers Read hosts debut mystery author Amato

FALLBROOK – Writers Read, a free monthly author series at Fallbrook Library, will feature San Diego-based, debut mystery author Danielle Mages Amato in October.

Amato, the dramaturg at San Diego’s Old Globe Theatre, will read from and discuss her novel, “The Hidden Memory of Objects,” preceded by an open mic session. The reading will be held 6 to 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 10 in the library’s community room.

“The Hidden Memory of Objects,” published by HarperCollins in 2017, is a complex and fast-paced mystery set in and around contemporary Washington, D.C. and in flashbacks to the past, including the 1865 assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. Although published as young adult fiction, the book is enjoyable for mystery fans of any age.

The story’s protagonist, Megan Brown, has lost her brother, Tyler, in reported circumstances she does not want to believe. Her quest for the truth leads her to discoveries about life, her family and herself, including her sudden and mystifying ability to observe memories inherent in significant objects she touches.

“The Hidden Memory of Objects” is such a strong debut novel that it was optioned for a possible television series, months before its release.

The book will be available for sale and signing by the author.

Fallbrook Library is located at 124 S. Mission Road, between Alvarado and Fig streets.

The next Writers Read, Tuesday, Nov. 14, will feature returning author Deanne Stillman with her new book, “Blood Brothers: The Story of the Strange Friendship Between Sitting Bull and Buffalo Bill.”
