My friend and Professor of Photo Journalism, Brian McDermott has created the first MOOC (Massive Open Online Class) at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. There are 1,000 students enrolled in Brian’s Website Development class and so far it has been a big success. Brian had asked me to create an illustration for the class’s homepage and I jumped at the chance to support such a smart idea and such a great guy. Congrats Brian!
“Back on the Shelves”
Before there was ever a YA section in the book stores, girls everywhere were flocking to read books like “The Cat Ate My Gymsuit”, “The Witch of Blackbird Pond” and “Summer of Fear”. Lizzie Shurnick along with Ig Publishing will be reissuing 7 books that Shurnick describes “were about family and divorce. We were living through parents getting divorces—and no one talked about this stuff yet. Even if [the books] were works of fiction and fantasy, part of the reason they’re important is a lot of them were about women and power. A lot about domestic violence. A lot about sexism.”
