Alumna Author Tilden Davis Arnold '10

Congratulations to alumna, Tilden Davis Arnold '10 on the publication of her memoir, Reassembled: Unlocking the Extraordinary Within. Tilden describes her realization of becoming an author this way: "For someone who loves words, I still haven't found the right ones to describe the feeling of seeing my creation for the first time, sitting in boxes, ready to find its way into hearts and hands." Beautifully written, Tilden tells the story of a not so easy childhood and the  sudden passing of her father. She goes into detail about how she managed her grieving process. Printed on the back cover of her book, "Reassembled reminds all readers that our worst life-shattering moments may actually reshape us into the most beautiful version of our truest selves."
