Kim McLarin Jumped Off the Journalist Track and Never Looked Back
An interview with the author of Womanish
Kim McLarin wanted to be a reporter. But while at The New York Times, she realized the kind of reporting she wanted to do didn’t involve working at The Gray Lady.
McLarin’s the author of a few books. Her most recent is Womanish: A Grown Black Woman Speaks on Love and Life (paid link), an essay collection about being a Black American woman. McLarin’s also written novels and teaches English at Emerson College.
