@Noon: A Reading and Conversation with Kendra Atleework and April Dávila
“(A) powerful debut, Miracle Country, is the rare trifecta that seamlessly blends personal narrative with historical nonfiction and highly charged, activist-style rhetoric,” writes the San Francisco Chronicle. The seeds for this memoir may have been sown in Kendra Atleework ’11’s hometown of Small Meadows in the Eastern Sierras, a place that’s at the center of her debut, but her writing was nourished during her time at Scripps. California’s landscape and the College have been similarly nourishing to April Collier Dávila ’99’s creative work. The Pushcart Prize-nominated writer’s first novel, 142 Ostriches, set in the desert just east of Los Angeles, was published earlier this year. Join Atleework and Dávila for a reading and conversation.
@Noon: Kendra Atleework and April Dávila will be available on the Scripps Presents Vimeo showcase. Visit https://vimeo.com/showcase/7467325 to view the video on Tuesday, October 13 at noon!
