    Ever heard of the Commonwealth Shakespeare Company? How about the Greenway Carousel? Boston is chock full of historically and culturally rich sites that many people don’t even know exist, or think are too expensive to pay a visit. But thanks to the Free Fun Fridays program, these sites just became much more accessible.

Q&A: Gary Goshgarian, pioneering English professor

Jul 20, 2014

Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) recently awarded professor Gary Goshgarian with the Robert H. Goddard Award. Goshgarian, also known by his pen name Gary Braver, is the author of many science fiction novels (such as ‘Elixir’ and ‘Flashback’). At Northeastern, he became an English department pioneer by starting the science fiction novel class — the longest running and first such class in the nation. He continues to teach science fiction, along with horror fiction and the modern best-seller. The News spoke with Goshgarian about his unique career path.

Column: Hail to single parents

My parents split in 1996. At the age of two, I became that kid with the divorced parents who spent every other weekend with her dad. My family was concerned that my parents had “set me up for failure” or that my ideas about love and healthy relationships had been forever flawed. Divorce isn’t the greatest thing you can do for a kid, but I’m here to say that it’s really not the worst thing in the world either.
