Amy Mason Doan, The Summer List
We welcome Portland author Amy Mason Doan on Wednesday, June 20th, at 7 pm to read from her debut novel The Summer List. In the book, Doan cleverly blends a coming-of-age tale, the story of a long-simmering mystery, and a thoughtful study of relationships between childhood friends. Laura and Casey were inseparable friends growing up, until a shocking betrayal one summer night tore them apart. Decades later a wild scavenger hunt reunites them -- until the clues unravel to reveal a stunning secret that threatens to pull them apart again. The Summer List is about losing and recapturing the person who understands you best, and about the unbreakable bonds of girlhood.
Amy Mason Doan earned a BA in English from UC Berkeley and an MA in journalism from Stanford University and has written for The Oregonian, San Francisco Chronicle, and Forbes, among other publications. She grew up in Danville, California, and now lives in Portland with her husband and daughter.
