This month’s featured author is no stranger to literary fiction fans. Following her New York Times Bestselling book, The Interestings, and award nominated teen debut, Belzhar, Wolitzer returns this month with a new novel that is sure to strike a chord with anyone living in a university town.
The Female Persuasion is a coming of age story that begins when college freshman, Greer Kadetsky, has an encounter with a serial sexual abuser at a frat party. When she comes forward, the university’s response is lackluster at best, leading Greer to recount her assault during a public Q&A session with feminist icon, Faith Frank. The encounter will change the course of Greer’s young life, fostering a sense of purpose that may not meld with her future plans. This is Wolitzer at her absolute best, and a timely portrayal of modern feminism recommended for older teens and adults.
