In the summer of 1966, when Elizabeth Howard was a teenager, she spent the summer living and working at Plymouth Settlement House in Louisville, Kentucky. She spent six months studying in the UK in the early 70’s when London was still described as “Swinging London.” Through her travels to Africa, South Asia and Japan, she has engaged with a number of the people and ideas that have driven the trends that have transformed our world. 

Elizabeth is an author, journalist and creative director. Her books include: Ned O’Gorman: A Glance Back, a book she edited (Easton Studio Press, 2015), A Day with Bonefish Joe (David R. Godine, 2015), Queen Anne’s Lace and Wild Blackberry Pie, (Thornwillow Press, 2011). She lives in New York City.
