Love and Haight

Susan Carlton BS ’81 writes a young adult novel about being 17 and pregnant in 1971, right in the middle of San Francisco’s flower-power heyday, but before abortion was legal. The book was nominated for an award from the Young Adult Library Services Association (in the category of best fiction for young adults) and made the Amelia Bloomer list (recommendations of feminist literature for kids and teens).

Henry Holt and Company, 2012. 192 pages.
