Waiting On Wednesday: The Devil and Webster

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that highlights soon to be published books.

This week's pick: The Devil and Webster by Jean Hanff Korelitz
Due out: March 21, 2017

Product Information taken from Amazon:

Naomi Roth is the first female president of Webster College, a once conservative school now known for producing fired-up, progressive graduates. A former student radical herself, Naomi isn't alarmed when Webster students, including her own daughter, begin an outdoor encampment to protest a popular professor's denial of tenure, but when Omar Khayal, a charismatic Palestinian student with a devastating personal history, emerges as the group's leader, shocking acts of vandalism begin to destabilize the campus. As the crisis slips beyond her control, Naomi struggles to protect her friends, colleagues, and family from an unknowable adversary. A riveting novel about who we think we are, and what we think we believe.

I had not heard about this one. I read her previous book, YOU SHOULD HAVE KNOWN, and liked it. Will be on the lookout for this new one. What is it about books set on school campuses? So appealing to me.
