Lisa Burstein Presents: Pretty Amy Lisa Burstein's debut novel Pretty Amy is the story of a prom night that goes horribly and hilariously wrong. She will be doing a live reading, some fun giveaways and taking audience questions. Don't miss it! About Lisa Lisa Burstein is a tea seller by day and a writer by night. She received her MFA in Creative Writing from the Inland Northwest Center for Writers at Eastern Washington University and is glad to finally have it be worth more than the paper it was printed on. She lives in Portland, Oregon with her very patient husband, a neurotic dog and two cats. Pretty Amy is her first novel. She never went to her senior prom.
