I have no idea why it’s taken me so long to upload this, but TA-DA! Check it out–my freelance book reviews for Scooter magazine’s spring 2013 issue. I swear, reading Scooter makes me long for the privileged and plush lifestyle of the city’s finest kids…that I never had. It’s a Missouri thing. So when Editor-in-Chief Peter Feld asked me to re-join the Scooter team again (cue journalista montage) as a book reviewer, I couldn’t say no. Well, I could have, but why would I turn down an
excuse opportunity to indulge my inner only child again and pour over children’s books for a few weeks?? Exactly.
Working with Scooter is always great fun, and has been from the beginning when I met Peter in the Observer’s office as he furiously checked emails and made plans. The photo shoot for the inaugural issue was AMAZING (my first and most expensive Starbucks run is still one of my favorite summer ’11 memories), and writing about kid’s books this semester really helped me put my college self into perspective–at the end of the day, it’s all just about making arts and crafts while dealing with life’s little manifestations of hell (ohai, racism and bullying!).
