The Alumni Office is excited about our second book club selection, recommended by Gina Hausknecht, Professor of English. Hausknecht says, “The Girl Who Fell From the Sky follows the teen years of a biracial girl sent to live with her black grandmother in Portland, Oregon after a family tragedy. During her childhood in Europe, raised by her Danish mother, she has never identified herself as black, and now has to come to terms with how other people see her. It's a beautiful, lyrical novel about identity--not just racial identity, but about the process of coming to be who you really are.” Grab a copy today!
