Roots and Wings: Wellesley High’s Legacy of Nurturing Creativity will be a celebration of authors who went to Wellesley High School, and of the many teachers who have inspired, mentored, and nurtured them— from Pulitzer Prize winners to young people just publishing their first poems.
The Roots and Wings committee, led by WHS grad/author Beth Hinchliffe and former WHS English teacher Jeanie Goddard, is looking for names of living or deceased writers to include on the list. Email Beth.firstname.lastname@example.org with candidates, and their contact information if possible.
Organizers plan to make the list of writers and publications available online, and are readying for an event in the fall to honor them.

What a great project! I hope Beth is on the list; her centennial history of Wellesley “Five Pounds Currency, Three Pounds of Corn” (1981) is a gem. Surely her father, Bob, inspired many a history paper, too!
