Mass was born in Livingston and, after graduating high school, attended Tufts University where she majored in English.  She is fond of telling folks that her hobbies are hiking and photography, but really “they’re collecting candy bar wrappers and searching for buried treasure with her metal detector.”  Mass lives with her family in New Jersey.

The author talk is free, with reservations recommended but not required to ensure the Library has ample seating for the event. To reserve a spot, call the Library at 908-273-0350, ext. 825.

The event, made possible through a grant from the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders, will take place in the Rotunda of the Summit Free Public Library, which is located at 75 Maple Street.
