Nic Stone, author of New York Times bestseller Dear Martin and critically-acclaimed Odd One Out, comes to the Amador Theater to talk about her third novel Jackpot, a life-affirming story about the humanity in people, no matter how little or how much is in their bank account. She will be in conversation with Daniel Handler, multi-talented author of five novels including his newest Bottle Grove. Under the pseudonym Lemony Snicket, he has written the bestselling series All the Wrong Questions and A Series of Unfortunate Events.

"Meet Rico: high school senior and afternoon-shift cashier at the Gas 'n' Go, who after school and work races home to take care of her younger brother. Every. Single. Day. When Rico sells a jackpot-winning lotto ticket, she thinks maybe her luck will finally change, but only if she--with some assistance from her popular and wildly rich classmate Zan--can find the ticket holder who hasn't claimed the prize. But what happens when have and have-nots collide? Will this investigative duo unite...or divide?" — Publisher Marketing
