Cleo Wade is everybody’s BFF: “I connect with my audience because I start with where they are in life, and I just try to walk with them. I want you to rip out pages and put them on your fridge.” (The New York Times)

Women, critics, and what it means to be Sharp: “That these women achieved what they did in the 20th century only makes them more remarkable. They came up in a world that was not eager to hear women’s opinions about anything.” (The Cut)
