Leaving The Boys

All are welcome to participate in the Alumni & Faculty Authors Series featuring Mindy (Cottrell) Cameron ’65, MFA ’18 author of Leaving the Boys: A Story of Motherhood and Career, Feminism and Romance.

This is a story about one woman’s path through shifting cultural norms. It’s for women who aspire and the men who love them. In revealing an unexpected pregnancy that altered career dreams, Mindy Cameron brings to life a tale that is both personal and universal in illuminating the tension between motherhood, desire, and regret. Cameron’s determination to pursue her career is relatable even as her decision to leave her sons may be met with incredulity. Though set in an earlier era, the story is as modern as today’s headlines.

The event will include a reading from Leaving the Boys and an opportunity to ask questions about the book and the writing process. 

This virtual event is free, but advance registration is required.
