I was a child writer-dreamer who never strayed far from that path. Today I’m the award-winning author of sixteen books—dreaming my way toward more by night, while running a boutique marketing communications firm by day. I'm privileged to teach creative nonfiction at the University of Pennsylvania in spring semesters. Always and most importantly, I am privileged to be a mom. Look for GOING OVER, my seventeenth book, from Chronicle next April. My work has been or is being translated into sixteen languages. All content Copyright 2007-2013 Beth Kephart Books.

It will take me a long time to process the beauty of these past three days. Tonight, arriving home, my camera full of images forever blurred from the shaking of my hands, I want only to thank those who joined us to celebrate our son's graduation from a school he has loved. I want to thank my friends, who have written and sent cards. I want, too, to thank (in that odd, stranger's way of thanking) Aaron Sorkin, who spoke with such eloquence at the ceremony, such heart and honesty. There is a kind of intelligence that doesn't take itself for granted. There are words that are not just crafted but felt. Aaron Sorkin argued for a certain kind of transcendence today. He was the perfect speaker for an emotional day.
