Before a Canyon: Author Chat with Jeremy Tucker '97

Yale College and Bellaire High School Grad
Chronicling Experiences in Teach for America
Brazos Bookstore


Jeremy Tucker, a graduate of Bellaire High School and Yale College, joins us to discuss his new book Before a Canyon, chronicling his work as a Teach for America teacher in Phoenix, Arizona.   

Before a Canyon describes the relationship Jeremy developed with Victor, one of his students, and was written when the author's life took an unexpected turn.  After graduating from Harvard Medical School, Jeremy became a pediatric resident at Texas Children's Hospital, but soon became a patient when he was diagnosed with brain cancer.  During his lengthy rehabilitation, Jeremy was able to reflect on his experiences in Arizona and the lessons he and Victor learned from each other.

Today, despite ongoing physical limitations, Jeremy tutors students at KIPP Academy Sunnyside and is a recipient of the National Health Service Corps fellowship, developing a new career in mental health and adolescent care in underserved communities.  

Read more in this recent Chronicle article and in our forum with the author at Brazos Bookstore.
