PCC Reads 2011 - The Girl Who Fell From the Sky

The Girl Who Fell From the Sky

Durrow's first novel is a thoughtful reflection on racial identity.

PCC Reads is an initiative to encourage faculty, staff and students to read and discuss books with themes of diversity and social justice. This year, the book, The Girl Who Fell From the Sky, by Heidi W. Durrow, was picked as a starting place for discussion because it illustrates the journey of a young woman grappling with biracial identity in a world that would like to define her as either black or white. The library has a limited number of Heidi's books for checkout. Get reading today, and be sure to participate in the various PCC Reads events on your campus. Heidi will be coming to PCC on April 13–14, 2011. See: Acclaimed author returns to where it all began - PCC.
