Baking In Goodness

PRESENTED ON DEC 12, 2018
IN CHICAGO @ VOL 48

Janet Ginsburg is a silo-skipper. It took years to admit and even longer to realize this was a rare, good and useful thing to be. She admires those who seem to know exactly what they want to do with their lives, but is more than content to flit about with a glorious lack of discipline across an array of broad interests.

BY LAURA CHAP
@ VOL 16 ON APR 12, 2019
