Amy Nathan, author of the new book Making Time for Making Music: How to Bring Music into
Your Busy Life, will share real-life success stories and advice from some of the more than 300 busy adults (including several from the Baltimore area) who are featured in her new book about “amateur” musicians. Their experiences show that it is possible to fit music-making into a busy life. The book also features advice from music educators, health-care professionals, and researchers who point out that making music is not only fun, it’s good for your health, particularly your brain. A few Baltimore-area avocational musicians will perform during the event and will join for a Q&A session.
Amy Nathan has enjoyed several occupations, working as an educator, an actress, and as editor of a children's magazine. As a freelance writer of children's books, she has tackled such subjects as conflict resolution, homework, and allowance in a manner that reviewers have praised as clear, entertaining, and informative. Among Nathan's most significant works for young readers are her biographies of women who have served in the American military; they are collected in the volumes Yankee Doodle Gals: Women Pilots of World War II and Count on Us: American Women in the Military. Praising the latter work as a "clearly written, well-organized" book, School Library Journal reviewer Lana Miles cited Nathan for creating a volume that is "valuable for research and interesting for browsing." In Publishers Weekly, a reviewer maintained that each volume provides young history buffs with a "comprehensive historical account" of an interesting but often unexplored facet of U.S. military history.
