The New York Times bestselling author of seven books, Iris Krasnow was 8 years old when she first attended sleep-away camp, beginning her journey of building lasting friendships and essential life skills amid the towering pine trees and open skies of Wisconsin. Decades later, she returned to Camp Agawak as a staff member, where she is now entering her seventh summer running the camp magazine where she got her literary start.

With a universal message on the importance of long-term friendship for campers and non-campers alike, Krasnow fills the pages of “Camp Girls: Fireside Lessons in Friendship, Courage and Loyalty” with cabin pranks, canoe trips in rainstorms, crushes on boys from her brother’s camps and lessons in independence and resilience from childhood that can shape fulfilling and successful adulthoods.

“Camp Girls” powerfully demonstrates that camp is more than just a place or a collection of activities: it’s where we learn what it feels like to truly belong to a family, not of blood, but of history, loyalty and tradition.

Co-sponsored with Hadassah Northeast.
