Turning the Tables

I visited Lawrence University in Wisconsin a few months ago to give a talk about my Bering Sea adventure. While I was there, I also met with student journalist Alyssa Villaire. Read her story about my visit.

It’s weird reading a story about me. It actually made me a little anxious. Since I write about other people all the time, it’s probably healthy for me to have the experience once every decade or so. And Alyssa didn’t make a single mistake or describe my physical experience or attempt to psychoanalyze me or anything. I can’t imagine what it’s like having a 4,000-word profile written about you.

    Yeah, the few times I’ve been interviewed for stories were really weird experiences. I’m glad she didn’t make any errors with the story about your visit!

    Yes! It’s great that she didn’t get any facts wrong.

    For me…being your friend and all, cause it’s really all about me, it was funny to see you referred to as “Fields.” You’re Helen!
