As 7×7 reported last year: we want to be friends with Jennifer Maerz. The former editor-in-chief of The Bold Italic and freelance writer came to our offices to read about Carol Burnett, who helped pave the way for all the funny, smart women in Hollywood we know and love today.
This is the next installment in the video series from City Lights where we ask women we admire to read their favorite entry of our New York Times-bestselling children’s book, Rad American Women A-Z, and answer some questions about what it means to be a rad woman today. The book is authored by Kate Schatz, illustrated by Miriam Klein Stahl and published by City Lights/Sister Spit.
Jennifer Maerz is a San Francisco writer and digital media strategy consultant. She’s the former Editor-in-Chief of The Bold Italic, and her arts and culture writing has appeared in Refinery29, the San Francisco Chronicle, Salon.com, KQED, and Vice.
