  1. Dear Ms. Dagostino,

    I just read your article for America magazine on restlessness and the puzzle about the motivation for writing. Well done! I share many of the same questions/puzzles/wonders/anxieties which you expressed.

    Best wishes to you in your search.

  2. HI Emily, I just read your article, Swipe Up the Stars in the Notre Dame Magazine and I was so moved by your thoughts. As a mother of 4 and grandmother of 10, I so relish the time I have with all of them. Grandmothering is certainly a different experience and the fears actually multiply, but I don’t let that get in the way of the adventures. You’re a beautiful, thoughtful writer and I look forward to reading more. Thank you.
