We’re thrilled to welcome Judith Newman as a NextTribe contributor with the publication of her article, “Deal Breakers: The Anjelica Huston Epiphany and Others.” Judith she writes about entertainment, science, business, beauty, and popular culture for a wide variety of publications, including The New York Times, Vanity Fair, Prevention, AARP, and National Geographic. As a book reviewer, she reviews regularly for People and writes the column on “Help Desk” for The York Times Book Review.
Judith has a new book coming out in August from Harper Collins that’s a must read. To Siri With Love: A Mother, Her Autistic Son, and the Kindness of Machines was inspired by a 2014 article she wrote for The New York Times about her her autistic son’s relationship with Siri; it became the most emailed piece in the newspaper that year. The book, which can be pre-ordered now, is a collection of funny, poignant, and uplifting stories about living with an extraordinary child who has helped his mom see the world differently. And how refreshing to hear about technology that builds connection rather than isolation.
