About the Author
Wendy Swart Grossman has spent her career as a visionary advocate for community service, citizen participation, economic and social justice and all sorts of lefty fringe organizations.
She has worked with a varied group of people and organizations from Mike Dukakis (she was NOT responsible for the unfortunate photo in the tank), President Bill Clinton (she was NOT an intern with Monica although she does own a beret), Nelson Mandela (she did NOT serve time on Robben Island) and Harvard University (she had nothing to do with the loss of billions from the endowment). Wendy has a BA from St. Olaf College and a MA from Tufts University.
Wendy is a traveler, a mother, and a wife who plays the guitar poorly but with passion, sings loudly, and has trouble resisting the temptation to swim in fresh water ponds. This is her first book. But given the number of voices she hears in her head, it may not be her last.
