"We often think of family in the most personal, nuclear sense, but it actually intersects with so many aspects of our lives—what we read, eat, watch, and how we spend our time. I hope that by talking and thinking about family in a broader, more dynamic sense, we'll start to give parents and caregivers the support they need."


Carrie received a Bachelor of Arts from Yale University, as well as a Master of Fine Arts in fiction from Columbia University.
