New Yorker staffer and former Washington Post reporter Katherine Boo has won a Pulitzer Prize, a MacArthur "genius" grant, a National Book Award, and like 17 other accolades for investigative journalism focusing on the lives of poor people. She's written moving, well-researched, obsessively detailed accounts of welfare recipients, mentally disabled people who were abused in group homes, and Indian families trying to escape poverty in Mumbai. If you haven't read The Marriage Cure, her ~12,000-word piece on two African American women participating in a government-mandated marriage program in Oklahoma City, you'll want to figure out a way to carve four or five hours out of a Sunday and do it. Then go to this Seattle Arts & Lectures reading.
