3-16-12: Remembering Alice Steinbach
Alice Steinbach died Tuesday evening after a long battle with peritoneal cancer. A longtime reporter and columnist for the Baltimore Sun, she was the first woman at the Sun to win a Pulitzer Prize. She was also the author of three books, and was one of the first regular contributors to Maryland Morning. In the fall of 2007, she began a regular series of conversations with Tom Hall about books.
You can listen to one of their final conversations below. It aired in September 2009, and in it, one of the books Alice recommended was a book called Somewhere Towards the End, about the process of aging. It was written by a British memoirist, Diana Athill, who’s in her 90s. She still lives in London. Alice Steinbach’s books include Educating Alice: Adventures of a Curious Woman and Without Reservations: The Travels of an Independent Woman.
