Amy Goldwasser

Editor of RED: Teenage Girls in America Write on What Fires Up Their Lives Today (2008), which is available in paperback, and the social network redthebook.com. Goldwasser recognized the power of such frankly personal essays as a volunteer at the Lower Eastside Girls Club in New York City. She continues to work with the book’s young authors nearly every day, adapting their essays for television and theater and editing their personal and political pieces for national publications including Newsweek, the Los Angeles Times, and the Huffington Post.
