Forest Park resident and first time novelist Stephanie Kuehnert will read from her new book I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone Thursday at 7 p.m. at The Old School Records, 7446 W. Madison in her hometown.

Kuehnert describes the novel, officially published by MTV Books on July 8 but already available on Amazon, as “a book about punk rock, about mothers and daughters, about the Midwest, about fighting for your dreams, and about what happens when you run from your nightmares… A raw, edgy, emotional novel about growing up punk and living to tell.”
