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