Ivory Tower, a novel

Ivory Tower is the new novel by Grant Matthew Jenkins in which intrepid film professor, Margolis Santos, rallies a ragtag band of women to take on a corrupt university football program that is paying sorority girls to sleep with start recruits.

A novel for the #MeToo era, Ivory Tower tackles the sexual assault scandals that have rocked big-time college football since Southern Methodist University received the dreaded ‘death-penalty’ in 1987 for violations of NCAA.
