Kate Fagan is an acclaimed columnist and feature writer for espnW, ESPN.com and ESPN The Magazine. She is also a regular panelist on ESPN's "Around the Horn" and can also be seen on "Outside the Lines." Previously, Fagan spent three seasons covering the 76ers for the Philadelphia Inquirer. 

Her recent book, "What Made Maddy Run," chronicles the heartbreaking and vital story of college athlete Maddy Holleran, whose death by suicide rocked the University of Pennsylvania campus and whose life reveals with haunting detail and uncommon understanding the struggle of young people suffering from mental illness today. 

Fagan's talk will be followed by a book signing of "What Made Maddy Run."
