This fall marks the twelfth year I will have taught my course on trauma literature at Phillips Academy, a course that always ends up piquing the curiosity of others. Why, among all the wonderful topics in literature, was I drawn to this one? This essay is about why. Many thanks to LitHub for publishing it.

Thank you for listing TMWWW as a Best Book of July! “Tell Me Who We Were feels like it was locked away, waiting to be released when the timing was right.” That quote gets my book and I love it so much. Going to pretend that’s why it took me so many years to write it.

Minneapolis stealing my heart, as usual, this time with a beautiful review in the Star Tribune Sunday edition. “Captivating … an insightful, compassionate book — a truly wonderful collection.”

That time when you had so much fun nerding out with your writer-friend about feminism and Game of Thrones that you were both like, what if we do something crazy and pitch this conversation to the Washington Post?

Check out our article at WaPo’s The Lily! So many thanks to Courtney Sender for her incessant feminist brilliance, and to Nneka McGuire for her wonderful editorial work on this piece!
