Novelist Julie Schumacher, Director of the Creative Writing Program, was included in the Star Tribune feature "The Good Life: 'Famous' Minnesotans share their favorite travel destinations" on July 24. Schumacher described the New Jersey beach she's visited every year of her life "except when I was 8½ months pregnant and in the hospital with chickenpox."

Schumacher is the author of the comic novel Dear Committee Members, which won the Thurber Prize for American Humor. She's at work on another novel, entitled The Shakespeare Requirement (Doubleday).
