Debra Faulkner


Emily Griffith's life story is as intriguing as it is inspiring. From teaching in a one-room schoolhouse on the Nebraska prairie to founding Denver's ongoing and thriving Opportunity School, Miss Emily pursued her vision for all who wish to learn.

The book received the highest recognition from Colorado Independent Publishers Association (CIPA) with an EVVY Award in 2006. Judges described Touching Tomorrow as "A page-turner. A must for historians of women and education in North America."

Touching Tomorrow was a Finalist for the WILLA award from Women Writing the West.

"In Touching Tomorrow, Debra Faulkner gives us a carefully researched and well-written biography of Emily Griffith, one of the most important educational reformers of the twentieth century."
Modupe Labode, Chief Historian, Colorado Historical Society

"Debra Faulkner captures the essence of an individual whose legacy lives on today in the school she founded in 1916."
Les Lindauer, Executive Director, EGOS

"Faulkner has created a more complete record than previous Griffith biographers. Touching Tomorrow also chronicles Griffith’s shocking murder and the investigation surrounding it with unprecedented thoroughness and detail. Faulkner suggests in these pages a new theory of who-done-it and why."
Tom “Dr. Colorado” Noel
