Ainsley MacLean ’05 MD writes: “As a result of a pandemic project, I wanted to share that I self-published and authored my first children’s book, What Nature Friends Surround Me?, illustrated by my boy-girl twins Ramona and Ramsey (I used my visual arts photography focus at Brown to take a few photographs for it as well). It’s an A to Z poetic nature guide of the most common birds, animals, and trees in the greater Washington, D.C., area. It’s available on Kindle and in paperback.”
