Greetings Class of 2010! We’ve got a great column this time around, with book releases, podcasts, and as usual, new jobs, babies, and weddings:

First off is Gina Yeomans reporting that she has started a new position as assistant counsel at the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (LDF) in April. Nate Green ’09 and Gina still live in the Washington, D.C., area with their two sons, Auggie (3) and Milo (1).

Sam Schilit ’10 MA ’11 and her twin sister published their father’s book, A Moral Tail: The Life and Times of Woodchuck Village, posthumously! This illustrated chapter book is intended for kids of all ages and can be purchased at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other retailers worldwide. Please consider grabbing a copy for your little future Cardinals: all book sale profits go to Montgomery Hospice.

After a decade in New York City, Tony Zosherafatain is finally ready to embrace more chill vibes in Los Angeles (he will miss New York pizza though). He’s looking forward to new endeavors in the film industry, the sunshine, surfing, and plenty of hiking. If you’re also in the Los Angeles area, feel free to reach out to connect!

Ben Kuebrich reports that he’s launched a true crime podcast called Algorithm (find the podcast at algorithmpod.com)!

Gloria Fanchiang shares: “It’s been just over a year since moving to Los Angeles to pursue music, and I recently released a song called “God Who Sees Us” which speaks to anti-Asian hate.” Gloria adds, “I would love to connect with Wes friends locally and/or on the internet!”

Jonathan Killeen married Alisha Wielgoszinski on a beautiful July afternoon in New Hampshire. The couple was surrounded by a “strong Wes Lax showing,” including Nick “the Jiggler” Ajello, Jason Ben-Eliyahu ‘09, Lonny Blumenthal, Gavin Brennan, Colin Campbell, Nick Hayes ‘09, Dan O’Brien, Bo Pratt, Ram Sivalingam, Matt Ward and Field Yates ‘09. David Layne and Ashley Kass were not in attendance as they were busy tending to their newborn baby girl, and future Cardinal, Charlotte, who was born just days prior to the festivities.

After eight years in Philadelphia, Shannon Sun-Higginson and Andrew Murphy recently returned to New York City this summer. Shannon is currently directing two episodes of an upcoming HBO docuseries about Asian American cuisine, while Andrew recently graduated from an MD/PhD program at UPenn and is now starting his psychiatry residency at Columbia. They’ve been spending their days catching up with old friends Samantha Sherman ’09, Tara Kahn Rooks, Seth Rosen, Ian Park ’11, and Aaron Izakowitz.

Finally, Dylan Marron contributes: “I’m finishing up my first book and it’ll be out in January! Conversations with People Who Hate Me retraces my steps through the social experiment I’ve been doing for the last four years in which I call up internet strangers who have sent me negative or hateful messages and try to understand where they’re coming from. It’s out January 18, 2022!” Dylan’s book can be found on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other retailers.

Thanks as always to those who contributed and, as always, feel free to pass along notes real-time at DavidALayne@gmail.com, or dlayne@wesleyan.edu.
