Author Event - Mrs. Smith's Spy School for Girls with Beth McMullen

The Avid Reader is excited to welcome Davis author, Beth McMullen for a reading, discussion and signing of her action-packed debut kid's book, "Mrs. Smith’s Spy School for Girls" on Saturday, September 16th at 5:00 p.m.

Kirkus Reviews calls the book, “A sassy, new spy series with a spunky heroine, multitalented sidekicks, and tense, rapid-fire adventure.”

After a botched escape plan from her boarding school, Abigail is stunned to discover the school is actually a cover for an elite spy ring called The Center, along with being training grounds for future spies. Even more shocking? Abigail’s mother is a top agent for The Center and she has gone MIA, with valuable information that many people would like to have—at any cost. Along with a former nemesis and charming boy from her grade, Abigail goes through a crash course in Spy Training 101, often with hilarious—and sometimes painful—results. But Abigail realizes she might be a better spy-in-training than she thought—and the answers to her mother’s whereabouts are a lot closer than she thinks…

Beth McMullen is the author of the Mrs. Smith’s Spy School for Girls series and several adult mysteries. Her books have heroes and bad guys, action and messy situations. An avid reader, she once missed her subway stop and rode the train all the way to Brooklyn because the book she was reading was that good. She lives in Northern California with her family, two cats and a parakeet named Zeus, who is sick of the cats eyeballing him like he’s dinner. Visit her at
