Carolyn Lumsden
Editor, Opinion Page
My Role

I oversee the daily Opinion pages, the six-page Sunday Opinion section, and the highly capable crew that produces them. We write editorials and publish a dozen local op-eds and columnists weekly, as well as daily letters and the Englehart cartoon. We publish the Cartoon Caption Contest, Buzz questions, "Ed Page" on Facebook (friend us) and Twitter (follow us). We produce Key Issue Forums, candidate interviews, and on and on.
My Biography

I've worked at the Associated Press in Boston, at Random House in New York, Gillette Corp. in Boston. Went to BU (majored in English lit), later to journalism school at Stanford, and spent a wonderful year at Yale Law School on a Knight fellowship. I live in Suffield with my husband, Francesco Martini, a native of Italy. We go back every year to Gaville, a little magical kingdom where he grew up.
My Interests

Media, ideas, books, Italy, Connecticut.
