About the book

 When a college dean’s affair with a student goes viral, two feminist students decide to take vengeance on the school by taking a hostage, and barricading themselves in the administration building. 

#triggerwarning is a raucous trip through gender politics and academia told from various perspectives, including those of campus buildings. #triggerwarning shows us how people with few opportunities to address systematic  injustices amplify their voices, fueling the urgency to act. 

Praise for #triggerwarning

"#triggerwarning takes us deep into the complicated, skewed world of Baines College, a small liberal arts school in the woods of Vermont, full of eccentric personalities and dark secrets; a powder keg just waiting to go off.  Coleen Kearon has crafted a page-turning literary novel full of suspense and surprises, that shows us how far people can go when pushed to extremes.”  

—Jennifer McMahon,  New York Times bestselling author of Island of Lost Girls.
