Holiday Big Tent: Amanda Sellet and Rebekah Taussig
Child of the ’70s Amanda Sellet is a former journalist who has written for NPR, VH1 and the Washington Post but now spends her days fictionally channeling her inner young adult. She lived in California, South Dakota, England and New York before moving to Lawrence five years ago with her husband and daughter.
Rebekah Taussig is in the middle of her fourth year of her PhD and writes personal essays about bodies, identity, and experiences of difference. She's convinced that writing about the weirdness of life is the only way she can begin to understand it, which might be why she's in the middle of her 11th year of writing school.
