Dr. Laura Nicosia and Dr. Jim Nicosia, and the Visiting Writers Committee of the English Department, welcomed award-winning author, social activist, filmmaker, philanthropist, e.E. Charlton-Trujillo, to campus on Thursday, March 21.

Charlton-Trujillo (winner of the Stonewall Book Award for her novel, Fat Angie) will discuss the sequel, her newly released novel, Fat Angie: Rebel Girl Revolution, and her nonprofit organization, Never Counted Out, which provides protective factors to teenagers who are at risk of emotional, behavioral, and/or mental disorders. Upwards of 70 students attended this visit, purchased copies of her books, got autographs, and took selfies with the author.
