Course Leader Bio

As a founder of LLAIC I have been closely involved with all aspects of the organization. We have now completed 18 semesters and I have taken at least one course each semester, have led 3 or 4 courses including Short Story Discussion and Analysis, Justice (with Mary Mansfield) based on Michael Sandel’s Harvard course, Comedy (with Sue Goldberg) and both winter- and summer sessions of New Yorker short story discussion and analysis. My own work has been published in several online blogs. I started as a stringer for The Patriot Ledger and created both the BOLLI Bulletin and The Quill at LLAIC.  My undergrad degree is from Brandeis and I completed my formal education in Library Science at Framingham State College.
