About the event

Local author Aimee Eddy will be signing her newly released book Escape to the Garage: Family Love Overcomes Bullying. Unable to do classwork in first grade, Aimee Eddy is called a retard by her teacher. This label follows her throughout elementary school and forces her to endure daily bullying from classmates and teachers. Low self-esteem and hopelessness threaten to swallow her.

Despite the hardships at school, she finds love and acceptance in one place—the family garage. There, Aimee, her siblings, and cousins disappear into their imaginations as they build forts in the junkyard and roll down hills in inner tubes. The support she receives from her family at the garage gives her the courage to withstand the deep depression school produces. Then tragedy strikes, and the family loses the garage. Without this place of refuge, how will she find the strength to stand up to bullies?
