Don’t miss the chance to meet Tim and hear him tell tales! Kate and Tess give the book TWO THUMBS UP! Tim Federle, a Pittsburgh native, will be at the Penguin Bookshop on Wednesday, Febraury 6 from 3:00 to 4:30.

Nate Foster has big dreams. His whole life, he's wanted to star in a Broadway show. (Heck, he'd settle for seeing a Broadway show.) But how is Nate supposed to make his dreams come true when he’s stuck in Jankburg, Pennsylvania, where no one (except his best pal Libby) appreciates a good show tune? With Libby’s help, Nate plans a daring overnight escape to New York. There's an open casting call for E.T.: The Musical, and Nate knows this could be the difference between small-town blues and big-time stardom.

Tim Federle is the author of over seven hundred e-mails. He discovered show tunes while in elementary school, prompting bullies to discover Tim. Armed only with grit (and his father’s credit card), Tim fled to New York City as a teenager. He has since worn a Tina Turner wig at the Super Bowl, a polar bear suit at Radio City, and big fat grin in five Broadway shows. Better Nate Than Ever is Tim’s first novel.
