PALKO POV: My (Daughter's) Summer Reading List

Abby Palko and her daughter visiting Louisa May Alcott's house

Traditionally, the bildungsroman that is so popular among literary novels presented challenges to the author working with a female protagonist. But, there are plenty of novels centered on girls and young women that are worth recommending - and re-reading. Inspired by my daughter’s summer reading list, I’ve decided to revisit some old favorites and (hopefully) discover new gems. This post will kick off an occasional series of responses to novels with girls as their protagonists. If you’d like to read along with me, stay tuned for my reflections. 

The Women’s Center welcomed alumni back to Grounds during Reunions this summer with a panel on the importance of intergenerational mentoring relationships and an open house in our newly renovated space in the Corner Building. In both of those gatherings, alums spoke to us about the life-long friendships they formed during their time on Grounds and the importance of those bonds to their post-university years.
