Jeri Smith-Ready Reading

Villanova alum Jeri Smith-Ready (class of '91 English major) will be joined by three fellow YA authors from the Philadelphia area--Kelly Fiore, Justina Ireland, and Jen Salvato Doktorski--for a reading, discussion, and signing of their latest novels. Jeri's April release, realistic contemporary teen novel This Side of Salvation, takes place on Philadelphia's Main Line and deals with grief, first love, and all aspects of faith. Booklist called This Side of Salvation a "smart, well-rounded, and unpredictable tale" in its starred review.
