Barack, Barnard & 3Ms

I was thrilled that President Obama chose to give a commencement address at Barnard this year, on May 14--thrilled for Barnard, from which I graduated, and for the attention it will bring to women's issues as the Republicans wage their war against women.
The Barnard reunion will be held a few weeks later, the weekend of June 1, and for the second year in a row, Mentors, Muses & Monsters will be used as an inspiration for getting reunion goers to remember people who mattered to them. In conjunction with The Moth, a Barnard alum from each decade has been chosen to do a public telling of her story of a mentor, muse or monster from her time at Barnard. I'm honored the book is part of the reunion program and looking forward to attending the event and posting the video when it's available.
