Skype Author Visit in May 2015 with Local Teen Writer
Save the date! Tuesday, May 19th we will be hosting a Skype event for AHS students with local teen author, Maya Van Wagenen, co-sponsored by the Albany Public Library. Maya wrote the memoir, Popular chronicling her unique social experiment. She spent the school year following a 1950s popularity guide found at a thrift store, written by former teen model Betty Cornell. Can hair curlers, girdles, Vaseline, and a strand of pearls help Maya on her quest to be popular? The real-life results are painful, funny, and include a wonderful and unexpected surprise meeting with Betty Cornell herself. This event will be held in the UN Room at Albany High School from 1:30 - 3:00 pm.
