Meet the Author: Beck McDowell

A man with a gun threatens a classroom of first-graders. It’s a horror straight out of the headlines. But it’s also the plot of local author Beck McDowell’s debut novel for young adults, “This Is Not a Drill.” Hear her talk about her work during a Meet the Author program on Sunday, October 28th, at 2 p.m. at the Main Library.

Beck is also the author of the nonfiction book "Last Bus Out," a tale of heroism set in and around New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Find out more about her work at beckmcdowell.com.

Admission is free. For more information, contact Sophie Young at 256-532-2362.
