June 18, 2018 – Our time machine travels back to the days of poodle skirts, I Like Ike and I Love Lucy. Once there, we’ll meet Kitty Tessler — a saucy, scheming socialite out to settle scores with snobs.
Our guide on this whirlwind tour of Manhattan, Miami, and parts of Havana brewing with an anti-Batista revolution, is Amber Brock, author of Lady Be Good: A Novel.
Amber Brock teaches British literature at an all-girls’ school in Atlanta, and Publishers Weekly described her debut novel, 2016’s A Fine Imitation, as “An absorbing tale of art, deception, romance, and forbidden desire.” She holds an MA from the University of Georgia and lives in Smyrna with her husband, also an English teacher, and their three rescue dogs.
