In September 2016, Chapman University, Wilkinson College alumna, Danielle M. Walters (’10, MFA Creative Writing and MA English) had her first book published, Cut The Thread.

About the book:
When a man falls from a balcony during a concert of Stravinsky’s Petrushka, a mystery begins to unfold in the local newspaper. In a dreamlike, whimsical vision of Charleston, South Carolina, a strange puppeteer seems to pull the strings on several unconnected individuals who face trials of death, aging, and adultery. Cut the Thread questions the reality of what is witnessed within the confines of fiction. What seems to be ordinary occurrence under an umbrella of printed mystery becomes a grand gesture of performance.

Way to go Danielle!
