The Reading Room

Fiction, Poetry, Memoir & the Arts

Remember the tale of a little boy having a terrible, horrible day? That classic child’s book was penned by Judith Viorst, Class of 1952, one of many Rutgers University-Newark alumni, faculty and staff who are renowned authors and poets.

Politics, Finance & History

Biographies that reveal hidden life stories; financial planning advice; precedent-setting lawsuits. Works of non-fiction by Rutgers authors reflect the reality of life, while also, on occasion, transforming that reality.
