The New York Times bestselling author of You Should Have Known and Admission reads from her prescient new novel, The Devil and Webster, about a college president and a student protest that mirrors today’s campus unrest.
Provocative and illuminating, The Devil and Webster tackles issues of race, identity and freedom of expression. Naomi Roth is the first female president of Webster College, a once conservative school now known for producing fired-up, progressive graduates. A former student radical herself, Naomi isn’t alarmed when Webster students, including her own daughter, begin an outdoor encampment to protest the denial of tenure to a popular professor. When Omar Khayal, a charismatic Palestinian student with a devastating personal history, emerges as the group’s leader, shocking acts of vandalism begin to destabilize the campus. As the crisis slips beyond her control, Naomi struggles to protect her friends, colleagues, and family from an unknowable adversary.
Jean Hanff Korelitz was born and raised in New York and graduated from Dartmouth College and Clare College, Cambridge.
