Young Adult Author Mairead Case Reads And Signs See You In The Morning says
Meet Mairead Case as she presents her young adult title, See You in the Morning, a book that's been called,"[T]he perfect book for anyone unconvinced that the accepted path toward adulthood is for everyone–and for those perpetually figuring out what it might be to belong." - JOSHUA JAMES AMBERSON

See You In the Morning is a book about three seventeen-year-olds, Rosie, John, and the book’s unnamed narrator, who take care of each other one summer in a small Midwestern town. Rosie is a mystic romantic whose dad earned so much money writing screenplays that she doesn’t need an after-school job. John, Rosie’s ex, works at the roller rink in a rabbit costume and takes care of his mom when she's tired after her days spent cutting hair. The narrator works at a bookstore and sometimes focuses so hard on their reading that they see polka dots take over the room. John is the narrator's best and oldest friend, so now the two of them must be in love, right? Told in paragraph-shaped poems, and in the narrator's angry, tender, colorful voice, See You In the Morning asks, what is love and how does it work?

Mairead Case is a working writer in Colorado. She is also a PhD student at the University of Denver, the Summer Writing Program Coordinator at the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics, a columnist for Bookslut, and a poetry teacher at the women's jail. Before moving to Denver Mairead lived in Chicago for a decade, where she wrote for Punk Planet and worked at Louder Than a Bomb and the Poetry Foundation Library. Her book See You In the Morning is newly out from Featherproof.
