Description

The Open Book Canyon Country Presents The Extraordinary Ordinary is happening on Saturday, December 17, 2022 at 01:00PM PST at 19188 Soledad Canyon Rd and It's Free

Santa Clarita's The Open Book will host a book signing and meet and greet for Natalie Rodriguez, where she will sign copies of her latest New Adult novel, “The Extraordinary Ordinary"! The book is based on the award-winning feature film, which Natalie also directed, wrote, and produced the feature.

"Three college students learn how to cope with their mental health when one of them experiences panic attacks.

Years after being attacked in high school, a young photography student named Erica moves across the country from New York to Southern California (CA) in search of a fresh start. At the same time, she also strives to finish a photography project from high school to reach a sense of closure.

In California, Erica meets and befriends two individuals, Bianca, and Alex, who have a painful history of their own. Erica soon realizes that she is not alone in her struggles with anxiety and depression. She learns that the road to recovery is possible for anyone, regardless of their past.

While adjusting to her new life, her past and old coping mechanisms also heighten, especially with her parents' different views on life and their future."
