C.J. Farley on AROUND HARVARD SQUARE and Operation Varsity Blues

In the immediate wake of the breaking news about the widespread college admissions scandal, aka Operation Varsity Blues, Akashic Books/Black Sheep author C.J. Farley appeared on New York’s local Fox 5 News to discuss the parallels between Operation Varsity Blues and Farley’s new young adult novel Around Harvard Square.


Reporter Mike Sacks noted: “In his new novel, Around Harvard Square, Farley writes about a scandal strikingly similar to how Singer helped parents and coaches allegedly exploit athletic programs of schools like Yale, Georgetown, and USC.” Watch the video and read the full article [here].

C.J. Farley also appeared as a guest on an episode of CNBC’s Fortt Knox, hosted by Jon Fortt, in which Fortt and his panel of guests discussed the college admissions scandal. Watch the full panel and Farley’s interview [here].
