Look what came in the mail.
Thank you so much, Grinnell College, for this honor. As I said in my wee acceptance speech, what Grinnell gave me is at the center of all the work I have done and all the work I will ever do. Grinnell taught me to find the resonant moments–the arias–in the thrum of the everyday, and to try to be of service and joy to others. I will keep trying to be worthy of this award, and of my Grinnell education.
