Author Ishmael Beah ’04 returned to Oberlin College in 2010 to discuss the publication of his New York Times best-selling book, A Long Way Gone, Memoirs of a Boy Soldier. Four years later Beah’s visit to Finney Chapel took place after the publication of Radiance of Tomorrow, A Novel, which would go on to become another best-seller. Beah’s visits to campus serve as inspiration for this week’s photo series.

In this photo series, we walk with the dinosaurs in Cleveland and visit a congressional intern in Washington, D.C., before coming back home to Oberlin to watch the Wild Beast of the Bungalow take over the stage in Warner Concert Hall; go snowboarding in Hales Gym; and sit in on a gallery talk, book art class, choir practice, an academic retreat, and a dance performance.
