Decatur Library Auditorium
February 29, 2020, 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
Join Little Shop of Stories and the Georgia Center for the Book for the book launch of Mayra Cuevas’ SALTY, BITTER, SWEET! Atlanta author Kimberly Jones (I’m Not Dying with You Tonight) will talk to Mayra about the release of her book and take questions from the audience. Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Mayra is a professional journalist and fiction writer who prefers love stories with a happy ending. Her debut fiction short story was selected by best-selling author Becky Albertalli to appear in the Foreshadow, the YA serial anthology, Issue 04 in April 2019. She is currently a special projects producer and writer for CNN. She keeps her sanity by practicing Buddhist meditation and serving on the Board of Directors of Kadampa Meditation Center Georgia. She lives with her husband, also a CNN journalist, and their cat, in the charming town of Norcross, Georgia. She is also the step-mom to two amazing young men who provide plenty of inspiration for her stories. Her claim to fame came as her family appeared in Season 2 of Buying and Selling with the Property Brothers. SALTY, BITTER, SWEET is contemporary YA and Mayra’s debut novel. Event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 4:30. Books will be available for purchase and to have signed.
