CHAPTERS is where our girls’ work goes from page to stage, and these talented young writers perform their best work. Each reading opens with a keynote speech from an inspiring writer who embodies the principles we instill in our girls: dedication to craft, determination to tell a story with honesty and brilliance, and a passion to live fearlessly. This year’s keynote speakers include exciting new authors with fresh voices that are not always represented in the classic canon or on high school reading lists.
