Although I didn’t attend Sarah Lawrence College, I’m always pleased when people see my byline in their terrific magazine and think I did.
Sarah Lawrence comes out twice a year. It covers all the usual alumni magazine stuff like updates about goings-on at the school and news from notable alums, but blows most other alma mater publications out of the water with its commitment to producing a score of thoughtful stories about fascinating people, places, and projects in every issue.
Take this sampling from their most recent edition, themed “Finding Courage”:
- Meet the founder of Britain’s first renewable energy company for residents of public housing
- Behold this collaboration that pairs creative and performing arts students, faculty, and alumni with prison inmates and parolees
- Follow this Indian-born chef’s journey from editing international literature to holding supper clubs in Brooklyn (oh hey, that’s mine!)
(In addition to presenting you with these opportunities for top-notch reading, I would be remiss if I didn’t shout out the aforementioned chef’s supper club by name. The Tiffin Club pops up periodically with inventive menus, bodacious wine pairings, and excellent camaraderie. Worth your time!)
My hearty thanks to Sarah Lawrence‘s smart and gracious editors, who are wonderful to work with and who somehow keep inviting me back to write stuff. Coming this fall, an interview with a Davis Projects for Peace winner who’s making cardboard furniture with inner city kids!
