THE WALLS AROUND US Selected as Salem College’s First-Year Read

The Walls Around Us was selected as Salem College’s “First-Year Read” for 2015! This means that all incoming first-year students will be assigned to read Walls over the summer, and then this fall I will be visiting campus to meet with students and give a public lecture about the book!


Salem College is a historic women’s college in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and each fall they invite one author to be their First-Year Read author in their Salem Signature program. I am so very honored that The Walls Around Us was chosen, and I am thrilled to be able to meet the young women of Salem College this September!

The lecture I will be giving this September will be open to the public, and I will post details here once they are announced. Thank you so much, Salem College, for this incredible honor!
