Molly Birnbaum, 29, recently posted a quote on her blog My Madeleine by Cheryl Strayed, author of the Memoir, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail.
“Writing is hard for every last one of us – straight white men included. Coal mining is harder. Do you think miners stand around all day talking about how hard it is to mine for coal? They do not. They simply dig.”
No matter what life throws at her, Molly Birnbaum, whose first book, Season to Taste, was a finalist in the 2012 IACP Literary Food Writing Awards, keeps digging.
