Her initial visit as USM’s first-ever author-in-residence was a smashing success.
For two weeks in October 2022, Atia Abawi—author, journalist, and humanitarian—met with students and teachers in all divisions as the school’s author-in-residence. This visit stoked imaginations and inspired new ideas, setting the stage for her next residencies in January and April. “I’ve had such a wonderful time working with the incredible students and faculty,” she said. “I can’t wait to dive in even deeper in the forthcoming trips.”
Abawi’s visit was arranged by Upper School faculty Kat Zilka and Laura Klein, with further support from faculty in each division. It is sponsored by a USM Think Big grant, an endowed fund supported by generous donors. Visit www.usm.org/abawi to learn more.
