NY Times Columnist Lauds the Writing of Beth Kowitt ’07

Fortune magazine reporter (and former Bowdoin Orient editor) Beth Kowitt ’07 has been awarded a “Sidney” by New York Times columnist David Brooks-an award he presents annually for the best magazine essays of the year. Brooks calls Kowitt’s August piece on the grocery store chain, Trader Joe’s, “eye-popping.” Kowitt, who joined Fortune immediately after graduating from Columbia Journalism School, was also the subject of a profile in the most recent issue of Bowdoin magazine.
