Feedback on reading at Frederick Community College:
• "Marion Winik was everything we had hoped for and so much more! Her Rules for the Unruly and advise to our students on living an UNCONVENTIONAL life resonated with the entire audience. Through the sharing of her life's experiences and her epiphanies along the way, she sent one of the most profound messages of encouragement, hope, humor, and celebration to our audience. I was so impressed with Marion's message that I purchased 30 of her books and have given them all as gifts! We will absolutely have her back! Her energy, spirit, and message are food for the soul!" –Jeanni Winston-Muir, Dean, Frederick Community College
