As we wrap up season four, host Dan Baum talks with podcast writer, Amy Willard, about the future of education, her next big adventure and saying goodbye (for now).
When Amy Carr Willard was three, her granny began teaching her to read … out of self-defense. Bestowing the gift of literacy bought poor Granny a few precious minutes of peace. It also created a book-devouring monster.
Willard’s love for words and stories continues as she transitions from twenty-seven years as a communications professional to full-time writer/artist/gardener/mom.
Willard earned her B.A. in English from St. Mary’s College of Maryland and her M.A. in Writing, Creative Nonfiction from Johns Hopkins University. When she’s not ingesting a book (or sometimes while) she’s outside with her husband and sons: gardening, hiking or daydreaming in her hammock.
You can follow her garden adventures on the newly created Instagram account @fronds.like.these.
