CitySquash Students Dine with New Yorker Writer

As part of CitySquash’s Career Dinner series, eight CitySquash college and high school students shared a meal with New Yorker staff writer (and avid squash player) Tad Friend. The group discussed not only Tad’s insights about journalism and the writing process–including an in depth discussion of Tad’s 2003 New Yorker piece “Jumpers” which the students read beforehand– but also advice about choosing a line of work. The dinner is a part of a larger series that connects CitySquash students to professionals in various fields to talk about the industry and career choice. Special thanks go out to CitySquash supporters Angela and Michael Laskoff for hosting the event.
