Charles Adams writes: “Recently promoted to director of reimbursement at Partners Healthcare Inc., Boston, Mass. Beautiful children Brooke (8), Amanda (5), and Quin (3). Gorgeous wife, Sheila.”… Ginny Addison Siegler was honored last year by Carpenter Elementary School for her volunteerism at the school. Youngest Siegler, Riley (3), has started pre-school; Jesse (10) and Dylan (10) are in middle school. Husband Ben wrote a movie that is scheduled to begin shooting in March.”… Eliza Richards writes: “I’ve switched jobs, and am now an assistant professor at UNC-Chapel Hill. My book, Gender and the Poetics of Reception in Poe’s Circle, is finally out (Cambridge University Press, 2004).” Eliza’s book takes a new look at Poe, frequently portrayed as an isolated, idiosyncratic genius unwilling or unable to adapt himself to the cultural conditions of his time. Eliza revises this portrayal through an exploration of his collaborations and rivalries with his female contemporaries…. Suzanne Stiles Seale writes: “Enjoying my accomplishments, freedom, life at the beach. Letting go of hope for a family; all the things I’d planned and hoped for now leave room for new adventures. I feel truly privileged.”… Mary Wright writes: “Husband Mike Cressey, children Truman and Lauren, and I are starting our sixth year in Southern California. I have returned to teaching after a few years home with the children. Our door is open to former classmates who would like to escape winter.”
