Brown Bag Book Club: Past Book Club Reads

A Book Club for Anyone to Enjoy

February 2021 Book Pick

The novel follows Lizet Ramirez as she becomes the first person in her family to attend college.  According to the author (a faculty member at the University of Nebraska) the book is about, "big things and small things: family and identity; class and access and privilege..."  Cruset wrote the book with the intention of providing a roadmap for first-generation college student's experiences.  Perhaps the lessons learned within will provide us with insight as we help our students navigate the college experience here in northern Michigan.
