Library Patron Inspires Author

In August 2006, seven year old Noah Albion wrote his first fan letter to award winning children's author Mary Amato. He wanted to tell her how much he loved her first two books in the Riot Brothers trilogy, Snarf Attack and Drooling and Dangerous. Touched by his letter, Ms. Amato wrote back to Noah and his mom: "The letter and little photo of Noah came at a time when I was suffering from writer's block and was the key in helping me get over it. I put Noah's photo by my desk and decided to write 'for him'. It worked!".

The third book in the Riot Brothers trilogy, Stinky and Successful, was released in the fall of 2007. The dedication page reads: "Hey, Noah Albion, this one is for you and your mom!".

On Monday, March 3rd @ 7:00 p.m., Mary Amato will visit Dover Public Library thanks to Noah, his mom, Michele, and ZMJ Enterprizes, Inc.. Join us in the Lecture Hall for a fun, interactive presentation. Ms. Amato will read from her latest book in the Riot Brothers series. She will also let you in on some Riot Brothers secrets and teach you a Riot Brother game and song.
