Luke Katler officially became a Broadway producer this fall of the groundbreaking and controversial Slave Play, an exploration of the dynamics of biracial couples as a metaphor for America’s legacy of racism.

Julia Weber, Erica Normandin, and Matt MacDowell attended Oyster Fest in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, in October, when they enjoyed the sunsets and unusually warm weather and Matt tried his first oyster. They were there with a larger crew of Dartmouth people and were happy to represent the best class ever.
Lilly (Fleischmann) Ganong and Ryan Ganong ’13, Tu’20, were married in September in Chatham, Massachusetts, where they celebrated with many of their Dartmouth friends and teammates.
Jon Miller is finishing up medical school at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, and is currently applying to psychiatry residency programs across the country.
Florence Gonsalves is releasing her second book, Dear Universe, in May, two years after her debut novel, Love & Other Carnivorous Plants, was hailed by School Library Journal as “a must-have sharp, powerful, and witty immersion into the complexities of…mental health.”
From the back cover: “Dear Universe, Sorry for interrupting you with my presence, but I’m wondering if you could have my back for once. I recently had a massive chin zit and a period stain you could see from space and my boyfriend kissed someone else and also my dad is dying faster than usual. If you could show up during my last English class so I can graduate and like achieve my potential or something, I’d appreciate it.” It’s senior year, and Chamomile Myles has whiplash from traveling between her two universes: school (the relentless countdown to prom, torturous college applications, and the mindless march toward an uncertain future) and home, where she wrestles a slow, bitter battle with her father’s terminal illness. Enter Brendan, a man-bun- and tutu-wearing hospital volunteer with a penchant for absurdity, who strides boldly between her worlds—and helps her open up a new road between them.
