This year, Sheri Fink will be visiting Northeastern University on Tuesday September 2, 2014 to speak to the incoming class. This is a mandatory event for all new students. More information will be available on the Welcome Week website and in the materials distributed during Move-In.

Since all incoming students will have read Sheri Fink’s Five Days at Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged Hospital, the Department of English’s course College Writing (ENGL 1111) and other classes may use the First Pages book as a common discussion point throughout the first year.

How to get the book

The University Bookstore sells the book. It will be available at a 30% discount beginning June 2, 2014. Most major retailers also carry the book.
