30 Years of UC Davis Students’ Prized Writing

By Jeffrey Day on October 7, 2019

"As an undergraduate at the University of California, Davis, Liz Garone was among the authors whose works went into the university’s first book of Prized Writing (1989-90).

Her personal story, 'Not Simply Pure — Olive Oil,' about how her grandparents brought along gallons of it when they immigrated from Italy and how it is her favorite moisturizer, would help launch her writing career.

Garone (B.A., American studies and English, ’90) will be a speaker at the Wednesday, Oct. 16, debut of the newest volume of Prized Writing (2018-19), a cause for double celebration as this year’s book is the 30th anniversary edition.

Prized Writing, published by the University Writing Program, or UWP, in the College of Letters and Science, showcases nonfiction works by undergraduates in disciplines all across campus."
