Dr. Kim Kruger Reads What?
This month, we welcome Dr. Kim Kruger, director of the College's new Physician Assistant program which starts in Fall 2016.
Dr. Kruger took time from her busy schedule to stump us with a list that includes several titles which we do not have on our shelves. As is our custom, we will be adding them shortly!
Favorite or most influential books:
Loving Frank by
A beautifully written story about Frank Lloyd Wright and the women who loved him. They are faced with tragedies and moments of great joy. Their choices will leave you shocked, angry, sad and more than a little torn. A book you won’t soon forget!
One Thousand White Women: The Journals of Mary Dodd by
An historical novel set in America as we pushed West in the late 1800s. It is based on an actual government proposal to send thousands of female “cast-offs” to assimilate into Native communities in hope of blending the white and Native cultures. What if?
The Red Tent: A Novel by
An historical novel based on Dinah of the Old Testament. Think we have challenges as women today? Try living in Biblical times—never a dull moment!
The 19th Wife: A Novel by
Based on a true story of one of the wives of Brigham Young who fought to end polygamy in the US. A very interesting peek into the development of Mormonism and offers a better understanding of their misunderstood culture.
