Praise for Speakers

  • About Karen Russell

    Karen Russell was adored by all. She is magnificent. She’s kind and funny and generous and unassuming and smart and game and willing to speak with students. All I have is praise.

    —Hofstra University

  • About Emily St. John Mandel

    Everything came together beautifully! The students greeted her as if she was a rock star, her talk was interesting and spell-binding, followed by a good half-hour of eager questioning, all by students. There is no doubt in my mind that Emily’s demeanor and presence made the night. It was wonderful. She is very kind, and showed a lot of stamina and patience.

    —St. Michael’s College

  • About Bryan Stevenson

    I am still basking in the glory of Bryan’s visit. It was truly a wonderful event. Bryan is a gracious and eloquent man in every sense. I will be reflecting on his words and his philosophies for a long while.

    —East Lansing Public Library
