Deborah Goodrich Royce will read from her acclaimed debut novel Finding Mrs. Ford during a visit to Mercyhurst University on Monday, Oct. 7. She’ll read selections from the book (and sign copies) between 10 and 11 a.m. in the Waterford Room in Ryan Hall. Finding Mrs. Ford made several lists of the Top Summer Books of 2019, including Forbes’ Top 5, Good Morning America’s Top 10, and Book Riot’s Top 50. The novel tells the story of Susan Ford, whose “cocoon of privilege” is threatened when an Iraqi man from her distant past boards a plane in Baghdad to come find her. The reading is free and open to the public; for information, contact Dr. Christina Riley-Brown,
