Mary Schmich. For years Pulitzer Prize-winning Chicago Tribune columnist Mary Schmich has captivated readers with her poignant observations on everything from biting snowstorms in the Windy City, "where winter makes us strong," to politicians gone bad. Her skilled reporting –she traveled the world for the Tribune before starting her column--keen insight and poetic style make Schmich a unique voice in American journalism. Not to mention her range. Beyond big-issue topics with national import, her columns are "also about more ethereal realms, like the meaning of friendship, the power of poems, the contents of my mother’s refrigerator." Readers anywhere are sure to find something that speaks to them.
