A very interactive talk about taking a very nonlinear path in journalism and in life! A kind of “BackStory” talk about how a girl from a non-college-educated family dropped out of Berkeley to take care of her younger sister, made it through the alternative newsweeklies of the San Francisco Bay Area, got to NYC, went through a divorce, became the first woman editor-in-chief of a national music magazine, got her degrees at 39, has managed to attend, via fellowships, Medill and Stanford, teaches at Newhouse, and now works in multimedia at ESPN (and is married again). Written two books! Too crazy. It’s been super hard, and super fun, and the valleys have been tough from which to rise. But she has done so.
