Alumni Updates (April 27 – May 3)
Alumna Dr. Cecilia V. Gomez Andersen (AB English ’51, MA English ’53) and former faculty of the English Department visited the campus recently to promote her book entitled Corridors of Pain, published by Eloquent Books New York. According to Meg Files, Meridian 144 the novel “is an intense and moving story of fear and courage, and a girl’s coming of age in the middle of a swamp, in the middle of a war she can hardly understand. This is a powerful material. The language is wonderfully evocative. The details bring the place and this child’s life right before our eyes.”
Dr. Andersen is now based in Bella Vista, Arkansas. To order copies of the book through Amazon.com please click on this link: http://www.amazon.com/Corridors-Pain-Cecilia-Gomez-Andersen/dp/1606933116.
