Best-selling author and popular speaker to blog on family and faith, and “Swimming in the Dark”
As happened with our last blogger announcement, Simcha arrives to Aleteia while we are in the middle of busy times—not only are we preparing our coverage for the pope’s visit to Africa and scheduling lots of Thanksgiving and Advent-themed material for you, but we are in the middle of launching a new section (have you seen “Cecilia” yet?), aimed at promoting Catholic music and artists from around the globe. So Simcha, like the deacon, is graciously settling in, offering as her first posts a quiz about the surpassing strangeness of her life and the deep need to appreciate the legacy of Harpo Marx, even as we are seeing to all the last-minute details, like installing her headshot on the home page.
It’s a very pretty shot, by the way, of a head full of smart ideas on art, poetry, Friday recipes, human stupidity and the need, sometimes, to just shake one’s (admirably full) mane, and laugh. We are very happy to welcome Simcha Fisher to our pages.
Elizabeth Scalia is Editor-in-Chief of the English edition of Aleteia
