MacReads December 2021: Minor Dramas and Other Catastrophes by Kathleen West '99

Join Twin Cities alumni on Zoom for a lively discussion of Minor Dramas and Other Catastrophes by Macalester alumna Kathleen West '99

Our tradition for December is to have a Very Special year-end meeting in which we pay particular homage to our Macalester roots. This meeting, as usual, is particularly proximate to the one that comes before it, so plan your reading accordingly. 

Please RSVP and let us know you're planning to attend. The book discussion will be online from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Central Daylight Time. Zoom details will be provided upon registration. 

About the book...

Perfect for fans of Where'd You Go, Bernadette and Small Admissions, a wry and cleverly observed debut novel about the privileged bubble that is Liston Heights High--the micro-managing parents, the overworked teachers, and the students caught in the middle--and the fallout for each of them when the bubble finally bursts. Penguin Random House

About the author...

Kathleen West is a veteran school teacher. She graduated with a degree in English from Macalester College and holds a master’s degree in literacy education from the University of Minnesota. She lives in Minneapolis with her A+ human family and two B- dogs. - Penguin Random House
