Pushing forward through hard times

I’ve recently published three different stories of human resilience.

The family that runs the James Hook & Co. lobster company decided to rebuild when their company burnt down at the end of May.  I spent the summer checking on their progress, and wrote this report of their still-unfolding story for the Boston Globe magazine.

Steve Sarowitz, a passionate yet gracious entrepreneur, walked me through a painful failed software project and how he led his firm through that low point to its strong market position today.

Holyoke has suffered badly with the decline in its economy over the last 40 years. But Daniel Ross and Nuestras Raices have used community agriculture to help move the community forward. Now his work is spreading to other communities.
