The Pen Club: Our Generation’s Preppiest Writers

Curtis Sittenfeld
Sittenfeld quite literally wrote the book. Prep, with its cute pink and green grosgrain ribbon belt cover is not only a fantastic read, but it the perfect book to bring along to the beach club — it’ll even match your new Lilly bikini! Sittenfeld, the daughter of an investment adviser and art history teacher at a private school attended one of the nation’s most elite boarding schools — the Groton School — before earning her degree from Stanford. She later taught at the private DC prep school St. Albans School before becoming a full-time writer. Plenty of prep-inspiration to go around. We’re awaiting the sequel Prep, possibly something about the Ivy League?
