I’m Matt Ellsworth. I direct the Flinn Scholars Program, one of the nation’s most prestigious merit-based scholarship programs. An initiative of the Flinn Foundation, a Phoenix-based philanthropic grantmaking organization, the program partners with Arizona’s public universities to provide an unsurpassed undergraduate educational experience for Arizona’s most outstanding high-school seniors. After the work day, I read James Wood and David Remnick on the way home and Eric Carle and Laura Ingalls Wilder at bedtime.
From time to time, I do type things that aren’t entirely true. That’s a habit I picked up in George Mason University’s MFA program.
IndieBound’s search tool works for books and independent shops. As Ben Franklin said, “Buy local or die, peeps!”
