'Tilt 68' author Sarah Colton to read at Wake Forest
March 10, 2008
As part of a book tour in honor of “Women’s History Month,” author Sarah Colton will read from her new book “Tilt 68” at Wake Forest University at 4 p.m. March 18 in the College Bookstore located on Hearn Plaza adjacent to Wait Chapel.
The event is free and open to the public.
"Tilt 68” is a historical novel about radical change, particularly the changes of the late 1960s, including the availability of the birth control pill on college campuses and its impact on the women’s movement; the Vietnam War; the civil rights movement; and the drug movement.
“‘Tilt 68’ will speak to any reader who has ever challenged authority or wrestled with the conflicting doubts and convictions unleashed by power shifts along the elemental fault lines of life: sex, politics, race, religion, and war,” Colton said.
A North Carolina native, Colton is a freelance writer who divides her time between Paris, France and Asheville. Her articles and fiction have appeared in publications such as Glamour and Redbook and the short-story anthology “They Only Laughed Later.” “Tilt 68” is her first novel.
