Behind the Scenes

From Wall Street to Washington,
from Hollywood to Broadway,
we meet trailblazers, lifesavers,
risk takers, and history makers.

Sarah Lawrence Magazine—Fall 2016

In our tech-crazy world, it seems anyone with a smartphone can engage in a robust campaign of self-promotion, regardless of the promoter’s merits. So perhaps it’s more important than ever to acknowledge that the most meritorious work in any endeavor is often done far from the spotlight. Consider just one classic example: the elementary school teacher who instills in young students the simple joy of the written word. That’s why we wanted to devote this issue to the sort of people who might not crave the spotlight but perform essential work in a great variety of endeavors nonetheless—all of it done behind the scenes.
