Thirteen-year-old Emily Ross was one of the original members of the Marietta Antique Mall family — working with her family to build out their first antique booth. Emily could be seen there often, helping move furniture and arranging items.

When not helping out, she was in the break room, either working on her homework or on her sci-fi/fantasy debut, “Blue’s Prophecy.”

Marietta Antique Mall is excited to host Emily’s first book signing open to the public for “Blue’s Prophecy,” the first of a three-book-publishing contract she received at age 12. Her book signing will be from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 10, including a program with the Cobb County Police Department K-9 Unit and a free writing seminar with children.
