Esther Safran Foer Bio

"Ive been lucky enough to have had lots of interesting jobs in my lifetime, but nothing as exciting and rewarding as being the Director of Sixth & I. I originally got involved as a volunteer when the building was rescued. At that time, I was running my own public relations firm with corporate clients. Sixth & I quickly became my passion and now has changed my life forever. The work here reminds me of working in a presidential political campaign with its intensity, commitment, passion and hours. Outside the office I am the wife of the head of a nonprofit think tank, the mother of three writers, and grandmother of four amazing kids. I am humbled by the recognition of my work at Sixth & I as a 2008 Forward 50 honoree."
