Sharon Washington’s autobiographical one-woman play, Feeding the Dragon, delighted audiences off-Broadway and is now available exclusively on Audible. The one-act play invites listeners into Sharon’s unorthodox childhood, growing up in an apartment on the top floor of the St. Agnes Branch of the New York Public Library, where her father served as the building’s custodian. A love of literature and boundless imagination helped the playwright as a young woman persevere over dragons of all forms.

An extremely powerful and touching story that is a must read for college administrators, advisers, orientation leaders, resident assistants, Dean of Students, coaches, and parents. As an Emeritus Assistant Dean for Student Affairs at a major, public university, I conducted 11 years of orientation sessions for parents, freshmen, and transfers. After reading about Maddy, I would have given a slightly different presentation to address the transitional issues of the highly successful student.

I will recommend this book to our campus administrators. Thank you for capturing the very brief life of this young woman. May she find her "true self" in heaven and perhaps be playing a pickup game of soccer.
