Alumnae Book Club 


Summer Book Choice 

Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid

An instant New York Times bestseller and a Reese Witherspoon's Book Club Pick, it is also a 2020 NAACP Image Award Finalist. 

Such a Fun Age is such a fresh voice. It’s a unique, honest portrayal of what it’s like to be a black woman in America today. Kiley Reid has delivered a poignant novel that could not be more necessary.”
Lena Waithe, Emmy Award winning writer and creator

"Such a Fun Age is a startling, razor-sharp debut. Kiley Reid has written a book with no easy answers, instead, filling her story with delicious gray areas and flawed points of view. It's both wildly fun and breathtakingly wise, deftly and confidently confronting issues of race, class, and privilege. I have to admit, I'm in awe."
Taylor Jenkins Reid, author of Daisy Jones & the Six
