Children's Corner

MacPherson75.jpg (3899 bytes) Karen MacPherson, 44, has written "The Children's Corner" for seven years, reviewing books for infants to teens. She draws on her knowledge of children's books, plus her own background as the parent of two young children, to produce the weekly column. MacPherson bases the column each week on a theme, such as board books for babies and toddlers, new paperback picture books, poetry volumes, books celebrating various seasons and holidays, and books about such subjects as friendship, dinosaurs and animals. The column, written for the Post-Gazette, is available to 400 other newspapers across the country via Scripps Howard News Service.

MacPherson joined the Post-Gazette's Washington Bureau last fall, after working 13 years at Scripps Howard as the Washington correspondent for The Albuquerque (N.M.) Tribune. Prior to that, she worked for Thomson Newspapers in its Washington bureau and for UPI in Richmond, Va. In the Post-Gazette's Washington Bureau, MacPherson covers a range of subjects, from child care to gun rights to farmers. MacPherson graduated summa cum laude with a B.A. degree from Trinity College in Washington, 1976. For the 1976-77 school year, she was a Thomas J. Watson fellow in Paris, France, where she studied the relationship between the French press and the French government by working as an intern at Agence France-Presse. MacPherson received an M.S. from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in 1978. MacPherson is married to Peter Hardin, the Washington correspondent for The Richmond Times-Dispatch. They have two children, Sally, 8, and Timmy, 5.
