Pulitzer Prize-winning and genre-defying literary phenom Colson Whitehead brings his new novel to Scripps. Inspired by the dark and disturbing history of a reform school in Florida’s Panhandle, The Nickel Boys is also a timely and essential meditation on contemporary America’s troubled times. Kima Jones, founder of Jack Jones Literary Arts, joins him for a conversation.

Each ticket includes a copy of The Nickel Boys.

There are a limited number of subsidized free Scripps student tickets available on a first-come, first-serve basis. These tickets are available by using a special student promotion code in EventBrite at the time of registration. Limit one per person. Email events@scrippscollege.edu with questions.

This program is supported by the Alexa Fullerton Hampton ’42 Fund and presented in partnership with the Office of Black Student Affairs.
