Sixty Plus Lecture: ”Hanging in There - A Career in Journalism” with Leah Garchik

Monday, June 12, 2017 - 13:00

Having been at the San Francisco Chronicle for 45 years, Leah Garchik has witnessed change swirling around her at the same time she watched herself change from a young newly-wed to a grandmother. She has learned how to “Instagram” and “Blog” – the questions is: are those job skills relevant to professional happiness?

Leah Garchik washed up on the shores of Fifth and Mission in 1972. She began her newspaper duties as a part-time, temporary steno clerk and ascended the journalistic ladder. Over the years, she has served as a writer, reviewer, editor, and columnist. She is the author of two books, “San Francisco: Its Sights and Secrets” and “Real Life Romance.” She is an avid knitter, a terrible accordion player, a sporadic tweeter, and a pretty good speller.
