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.


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.
