npr stories and essays
I write occasional essays and stories for NPR.
Some of the series I've created or edited include:
The Changing Lives of Women
An ongoing look at how women are shaping economies and cultures worldwide.
You can scroll through the link to find stories and digital content from our series, most recently looking at Women and Age.
We asked women to share advice about work, money or image. Our digital team created a terrific "sign generator" on Tumblr, which Time Magazine named of its Top 30 Tumblrs of 2013. Women from around the world contributed.
Finding history and memory in unlikely kitchens worldwide. This is an ongoing series by producers The Kitchen Sisters - I edited this chapter, and it won a James Beard Award.
A summer road trip to strange cemeteries and graves. This one is a lot of fun. There's even ice cream.
I Thought My Father Was God
or, The National Story Project with Paul Auster
At Weekend All Things Considered we asked listeners to share their short non-fiction tales. Writer Paul Auster chose a few each month to read aloud. The result was a great series - The National Story Project, and the best-selling book, "I Thought My Father Was God."
