I am a former daily newspaper journalist with a resume that covers an era when switching jobs and newsrooms was just what you did, and could afford to do, because there was always another, better job ahead.
I grew up in newsrooms. First, my mother’s small paper in Massachusetts, then dailies in New Hampshire–the Concord Monitor, Keene Sentinel, the Union Leader in Manchester, and a rich, if brief, stint with the Associated Press. I served as an editor and writer for several years at the Seattle Times, and contributed freelance features to several newspapers, including The Wall Street Journal, and book reviews to The New York Times. New England has a strong hold on her natives; I am again living and writing in the great state of New Hampshire.
My book, “Carolina Israelite: How Harry Golden Made Us Care about Jews, the South, and Civil Rights,” was published by The University of North Carolina Press in 2015. It is now also available in a paperback edition and as an Audible book.
