ORIGINAL POST: Author and staff writer for The New Yorker, Susan Orlean will be in Alaska to speak at the Alaska Press Club Conference March 31 to April 2.
Here are a couple of my favorite quotes from her book, "The Orchid Thief."
"I was starting to believe that the reason it matters to care passionately about something is that it whittles the world down to a more manageable size."
"I would argue that it might be easier to endure loneliness than to endure the idea that you might disappear." - Susan Orlean
