If you could write a book about anything what would you write about?
Leah ‘13 - Biracial American Identity (I’m half-Japanese and did a paper about this my junior year. It was personal to me, and I learned a ton. People need to know about this!!)
Holly ‘13 - Italian-American Food Culture and/or the History of Pugs
(“Did you know that pugs originated in ancient China and then were super popular in Holland. Also Queen Victoria loved them. She had kennels of pugs. It’s interesting. I think people need to know that.”)
David ‘13 - Jesus Fanfiction (he said this as a joke, but I shouted “I’m writing it! I’m writing it!!” before he could think of something else.)
Glennis ‘15 - A book about street names and how they tell a story about a place. (“I’m hoping to do a radio show about it this summer.”)
Marta Strigham (Visit Coordinator at the Admissions Office) - An Oral History of Bennington from her perspective. (She’s worked here for 33 years!!)
Eric ‘13 - A Political History of German Unification (he doesn’t want a blurb.)
Holly K ‘06 (Admissions Counselor) - Either a memoir about her grandparents’ lives or a History of Media and Technology over the past 50 years and how it relates to Education Policy.
Lauren M. (Admissions Counselor) - The Agony of Gardening (“I’m serious. Right now I’m mad because my lilies didn’t come up [then she listed a bunch of other flowers that didn’t emerge this year] It stresses me out. WHERE DID THEY GO? Its not like I can say ‘I have a mole problem.’ No, I got rid of my mole problem.”)
