Another Hilbert Reads is in the Books (Pun Intended) | PHOTO GALLERY

Swan Auditorium seats were filled last night, Tuesday, October 22, for Hilbert’s seventh annual Hilbert Reads. All were invited to hear author Kate Fagan talk about her New York Times best-selling book on the sports list in 2017. Her book What Made Maddy Run shares the story of Madison Holleran, who struggles with the transition to college, especially with balancing school and sports, and makes the heartbreaking decision to commit suicide. Fagan discussed her book and its connection to important issues including anxiety, depression, and suicide in the perfectionist, social-media driven society we live in today. After speaking, students were invited to ask questions they had or share their own stories of struggle. Fagan then signed books and took photos with students and a reception followed in the West Herr Atrium. Thank you to all who attended and to Kate Fagan for visiting and sparking a conversation.
