Monday, December 3, 2012

7 p.m. Young Auditorium

Brooke Hauser has written for The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and The Miami Herald, among other publications. The New Kids: Big Dreams Brave Journeys at a High School for Immigrant Teens is her first book. Recently, People magazine selected The New Kids as one of its “Great Reads,” and Parade magazine chose it as a “Parade Pick.” In 2005, her interest in profiling characters not usually featured in the mainstream media led her to the City section of The New York Times.  Since then, she has tried to dig deep and tread lightly in many different worlds, from New York’s juvenile justice system to Harlem’s spirited Baptist community
