Thanks for visiting MyBigWalk. My name is Laurie Lico Albanese, and if you’ve been following MyBigWalk you know I turned 50 this year and resolved to spend it walking an hour each day. You may also know I’m a happily married woman, the mother of a college-age daughter and a son in high school, a tennis-playing, yoga-practicing, New York born and educated outdoor enthusiast.
I’m the recipient of a New Jersey State Council in the Arts Fellowship in Fiction Writing, and a Catherine R. Dodge Foundation Fellowship to the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. BLUE SUBURBIA was among the best books of the year selected by the independent booksellers association Booksense, an Entertainment Weekly magazine Editor’s Choice, and a finalist for the Paterson Poetry Prize.I’ve been teaching and tutoring writers for more than fifteen years. From 2004 through 2008 I taught at Wagner College on Staten Island, where I developed a popular memoir writing class I now teach to adults in Montclair.
I hope you’ll visit my website . And hey — thanks for walking along this journey with me.
