Pushcart Prize nominee Elizabeth Percer reads from her debut novel, a coming-of-age story titled An Uncommon Education ($24.99). A young woman learns that college isn't the bastion of solidarity and security she had imagined. Amid hundreds of other young women, she is consumed by loneliness — until the day she sees a girl fall into the freezing waters of a lake.
Elizabeth Percer is a transgenre author and a recovering academic, as well as a three-time nominee for the Pushcart Prize and has twice been honored by the Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Foundation. She received a BA in English from Wellesley and a PhD in arts education from Stanford University, and completed a postdoctoral fellowship for the National Writing Project at UC Berkeley.
