About the Author

Adrienne Robillard is a writer and English lecturer in the early college program at Windward Community College in Kaneohe, Hawai'i. She grew up in Kailua, Hawai'i, and Fresno, California. After college she worked in San Francisco as a technology editor by day and fronted indie rock bands by night, opening for The Decemberists and Arcade Fire in the US and playing shows in desecrated churches and underground clubs in the UK and Europe. Robillard lives with her husband and their two children in Kailua on O'ahu. A member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrator's Hawai'i Chapter, she is also a contributing writer to Hawaii Business and has published stories in Spunk and We'll Never Have Paris zines. In the summer of 2017, she participated in the Tin House Summer Workshop for a novel-in-progress.


"A nostalgic revisiting of Adrienne Robillard's life as a female musician, captured in tender vignettes." -Lisa Nola creator of the Listography Journal series
"Some people dream of joining a band, but Adrienne Robillard shows how it's done. In her gripping memoir, she goes from the new girl at school to a founding member of an indie band that eventually brings her to the UK and Europe. Maps and Tapes is for anyone who has ever wanted to follow a dream and not had the encouragement to try." -Susan Blumberg-Kason author of Good Chinese Wife
"Maps and Tapes is a beautifully rendered, gorgeously grounded and poignantly nostalgic story of a girl's coming of age in music. Robillard moves us across space and time, and her prose-like the music nestled within it-perfectly captures the thrills and longings of an era." -Liz Harmer author of The Amateurs and Strange Loops
