The MA in Critical Studies program welcomes Jerry McGill. Author Jerry McGill will be speaking about his book Dear Marcus. This lecture is part of the Critical Studies MA Program lecture series, which seeks out diverse writers and thinkers to involve the community in critically engaging topics.
In his book Dear Marcus, Jerry McGill addresses the man who shot him and the result is an inspiring narrative about the moments in life that shape us—those that catch us by surprise, that blindside us, but that present us with opportunities for growth, reflection, compassion, and forgiveness. He has traveled the globe mentoring disabled children and sharing the experiences in his life that evolved from his transformative encounter with Marcus. Jerry McGill holds a B.A. in English literature from Fordham University and a MFA in education from Pacific University in Oregon.
