Smith Avenue at Annapolis

Come celebrate the launch of NAMING THE STARS, a young adult novel by Susan Koefod. Hosted by Subtext Books of St. Paul.

NAMING THE STARS is the story of a teen girl who comes home from swimming lessons one day to find she is absent from family photographs, her bedroom has turned into a linen closet, and all of her possessions have disappeared. More troubling, her family goes on as if she never existed. The only person in town who can actually see her is a teen boy with a troubled past and secrets he’s determined to keep.

Please be sure to purchase fine coffee, beverage, and food from Amore Coffee in support of this event. Books will be available for purchase by Subtext Books.
