NYC Reception Celebrates Opportunity

More than three hundred guests helped celebrate the Maqubelas' thirty years of freedom at Groton's New York City reception, September 27. The venue, the American Museum of Natural History, was where Mr. Maqubela first worked after arriving in the U.S. with Mrs. Maqubela and their infant son, following persecution and exile from apartheid-era South Africa.

Besides providing an opportunity to connect with friends and formmates, the evening celebrated the opportunity that NYC provided to the Maqubelas, as well as the opportunity Groton School offers to talented students from varied countries and backgrounds. view photos

What keeps you busy now?

It's still stories: not just reading the literary variety, but listening to and appreciating the ones told to me by dear friends, old friends. I teach short stories from the New Yorker magazine at the public library in Delray Beach, Florida and volunteer as a factotum at a collection of artists books at Florida Atlantic University. In Boston, I am privileged to live in the South End where a group of activist seniors (aka "The Geezers") meets every Tuesday to discuss culture, politics, and poetry, and to appraise the many restaurants in the immediate vicinity.

What memorable highlight(s) would you like to share from your years since leaving Groton?
