One writer's quest to bring the past to life through imagination

Christopher Harder’s “Renovation” published in The New York Times column Motherlode

Leave a comment

Congratulations to Christopher Harder, who joined our Writers Circle this past winter, on the publication of his essay Renovation in Lisa Belkin’s New York Times column, Motherlode.

I’m very happy and proud of Chris, who has continued his work with me in my Tuesday morning sessions. Although two other members of our Circle, Marcia Worth-Baker and Lori Sender, have published pieces in The New York Times, our group can take little credit for most of their terrific stories. Chris’ piece is the first I’ve been honored to witness from inception to publication. Congratulations, Chris! Hopefully this will happen more and more for everyone in our Writers Circle.
