Sarah Pascarella moved to Boston for grad school in the summer of 2000, and has been a Bostonian ever since. The city's literary community, spectacular autumns, indie rock scene, and passionate sports fans keep her here, along with the diverse demographics – she loves that it's not unusual to see a fifth-generation Bostonian brushing elbows with visiting students or scholars from Myanmar, Ghana, or Brazil on the T. This mix of old-guard and constant new arrivals may be her favorite part of living in Boston: For a local, the city is always-interesting and ever-changing, and offers a truly global slice of life in a quintessentially American metropolis.


An award-winning travel journalist, Sarah has more than a decade of writing and editing experience. Her work has been featured in The Boston Globe, USA Today, Fodor's, Smarter Travel, and Traveler's Tales, among other publications. She is currently working on her second novel, and regularly blogs about pop culture and the arts.


Sarah received a master's degree in Writing, Literature, and Publishing from Emerson College, and a bachelor's in literature from American University in Washington, D.C.
