@Noon: April Dávila
**This program has been postponed. Please stay tuned for a rescheduled date.**
April Collier Dávila ’99 fell in love with the desert as an ecology major at Scripps and, a tumultuous decade later, decided to write a novel about it, setting her coffee machine to start brewing at 4:50am so she could get in some creative writing before beginning her day as a copywriter and mother of two. In 2017, her blog was listed by Writer’s Digest as one of the Best 101 Websites for Writers; in 2018, she sold her first full-length manuscript, and last year, she was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. She returns to Scripps to share her writer’s journey and to discuss her debut novel, 142 Ostriches.
