Last week, ELLE.com Scholar Lauren Barber interviewed Caroline Kitchener, author of Post Grad, about her book’s account of Kitchener and four peers navigating the years after graduation from Princeton University. The book highlights the complicated journey of young women with exceptional educational backgrounds.
Melissa Harris-Perry, who directs the ELLE.com Scholars program, previously taught Caroline and wrote about the experience of reading her former student’s book for ELLE.com. She wrote:
To discover a former student has written a text rooted in the stories of young women navigating the complicated social, political, and economic worlds they discover not long after leaving my classroom was fascinating—affording me a glimpse into their lives I am rarely granted. The creativity and courage I discovered at the foundation of these stories convinced me all my graduating senior advisees need a copy.
