My Northwestern classmate Cristina Henriquez has published a story, "Ashes", in the July 4 issue of the New Yorker. After graduating from Northwestern Cristina attended the Iowa Writers Workshop. A collection of her short stories, "Come Together, Fall Apart," will be published next spring.
Cristina and I were both English majors. She preferred to write her stories on a typewriter, and I thought this was cool. We briefly discussed completing a joint English honors project together, but soon learned that the department wasn't open to joint projects. Now I wish I'd fought for that project.
But who cares? Congratulations Cristina!!
