“Marie Lamba was one of the best young adult authors we have ever hosted at our library…I would highly recommend inviting Marie to your school, library or bookstore!” – Gretchen Ipock, YA Librarian, Sellers Library, Upper Darby, PA
“The best part of the day was Marie discussing the writing process and showing her drafts to them, illustrating that writing is an arduous task, a labor of love, and an expression of self. She offered encouragement to all the participants to pursue their dreams, whatever they may be. Fantastic day!” – Mary Beth Cusack, English Teacher, Lenape Middle School, Doylestown, PA
