'Men We Reaped,' this year's Tulane Reading Project book, is Ward's critically acclaimed memoir. With vivid prose, she examines the lives and untimely deaths of five young men she was close to, including her beloved brother. Her own story provides a poignant counterpoint: a private school education funded by her mother's employer eventually led her to Stanford, two graduate degrees, and literary acclaim. Yet she remains haunted by the memory of these men, and by the role that poverty and racism played in their fates. The work was named one of the Best Books of 2013 by The New York Times, NPR, and Time magazine, and was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award for Autobiography.
