Pen to Purpose; Cultivating Writing as a Brand of Professionalism with Jeanine Cummins
We invite you to join us for an engaging conversation between NSU's Professor Efrat Friedman and author Jeanine Cummins. With over three million copies sold, Jeanine's novel American Dirt is a #1 New York Times bestseller and an Oprah Book Club pick.
Lydia lives in Acapulco. She has a son, Luca, whom she adores, and a wonderful husband, a journalist. Despite the fact that cracks are beginning to show in Acapulco as a result of the cartels, Lydia's life is, on the whole, fairly comfortable. Her life will never be the same after her husband's tell-all profile of the newest drug lord is published. After being forced to flee, Lydia and Luca join the hordes of people trying to reach the United States. Lydia soon realizes that everyone is running from something. But what exactly are they running to?
