After 35 years in newsrooms, Beth Harpaz now refers to herself as a #recoveringjournalist. Fortunately, she’s convalescing at CUNY where she continues to put her finely honed research, reporting and writing skills to use in a new environment. She is the content editor for SUM, a new website showcasing CUNY research. She’s also the author of Girls in the Van: Covering Hillary (2001), Finding Annie Farrell: A Family Memoir (2004) and 13 Is the New 18: And Other Things My Children Taught Me–While I Was Having a Nervous Breakdown Being Their Mother (2009). Her work as travel editor for The Associated Press earned her the 2018 bronze award for travel journalist of the year from the Society of American Travel Writers and another SATW award for a podcast about visiting all 50 states. She has a contagious energy both in person and in her writing. If you even dip into any of her books, you can kiss the rest of your day goodbye. You’ve been warned.
