Boy at the Gate is a best seller by Danny Ellis who is coming to kick off the Amelia Island Book Festival.
If you know the wonderful folks behind An Evening of Story and Song, then you know their “day jobs” are in the world of books and when their friends with the Amelia Island Book Festival asked if they happened to know of any authors who also happened to be singer/songwriters, well, a partnership was fast formed!
This year, the Amelia Island Book Festival and Story and Song are pleased to welcome Danny Ellis as he returns to Amelia Island to kick off the Amelia Island Book Festival with “words and music” on Thursday, February 20th at 7:30 pm.
Danny first told the story of his growing up in one of Dublin’s most notorious institutions run by the Christian Brothers, The Artane Industrial School for Boys, in the highly acclaimed album, 800 Voices.
As a result, he was invited to tell his story in book form as well; Boy at the Gate, already a bestseller in the UK, is now available in the U.S. (please ask your local independent bookseller).
