$5 DCA members

In this revised edition of his top-selling publication, Gelb delivers a masterful presentation of the core advice needed to write a well-constructed, unforgettable narrative. Anyone who applies to a selective college or university is competing against many other students who have terrific grades, exemplary test scores, glowing recommendations, wide-ranging extracurricular activities, and various honors and awards. The essay is the one part of the process that provides students with an unparalleled opportunity to share who they really are and what makes them special. With Gelb’s step-by-step guidance, students come away with an original, authentic college application essay that not only helps them to stand out in the admissions process, but also prepares them to write better papers throughout their academic career.
Barrett Bookstore will have copies of this book available for purchase at the event.
In addition to partnering with Barrett Bookstore for book signings, the DCA also holds monthly “Meet the Author” events, where audience members are able to hear current authors and purchase their books. For details on upcoming events please click here.
