One of the perks of my current day job is that the school I teach for gets some pretty amazing guest lecturers and speakers. Most recently, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Junot Diaz, came to spend a day on campus. He was scheduled to do a reading for the entire school community that evening, but first he got the inaugural tour of our beautiful grounds and then spent some time with our juniors and seniors in a more intimate Q&A session. Somewhere in the midst of this crazy day, I was fortunate enough to get a half hour alone with Mr. Diaz for a photo shoot. Now, while I'm not at liberty to divulge all the bits of wisdom, irreverence, and insight that were floating around the room with Junot and me, I can show the results of my efforts. Enjoy.
