Author Patricia Dunn Event at Sarah Lawrence

The author held an event at the college where she teaches to promote the release of her new book Rebels By Accident.


Student's at Sarah Lawrence College as well as faculty and friends celebrated the release of Rebels by Accident by professor and author Patricia Dunn last week.

Some of the other titles Dunn has earned in her lifetime include, mother, writer, professor and also activist, having lived around the world from California to the Middle East.

She has found a way to channel all of these experiences into a touching, thrilling and at times humorous novel about the recent revolution in Egypt.  

Her book, Rebels by Accident tells the story of Mariam, an Egyptian-American girl sent to her grandmother Sittu’s house in Cairo as punishment for a little too much teenage rebellion.

However, Mariam’s exile to Egypt is soon filled with actual rebellion, death, and arrests as the events of the revolution in Egypt begin to unfold around her. 

Mariam is forced to confront her own confusion over her multicultural identity and decide what is worth not only fighting for but risking her life for as well.

The event was well attended and for more information on Dunn's Rebels by Accident, click here.

Pretty cool to have a teacher who is publishing books. Often times, my professors published their books years prior to me being in their classrooms so I was never able to see the launching of the book.

I took Patricia's class at Sarah Lawrence and learned a lot. Her book signing with a band was great. Just finished and enjoyed reading Rebels by Accident. All the best, Jackie Kingon http://is.gd/1EJulO
