An Interview with Megan Amram

Megan L. Amram ’10, a Twitter famous writer for NBC’s “Parks and Recreation,” calls her new book, “Science...For Her!” her “id of writing.” Having recently stopped by Cambridge for her book tour, she admits that Portland (her hometown) and Harvard were the two stops to which she was most looking forward. “I had so much fun. It really was like, ‘Oh, my God, this is mah people!,’” she says. With Harvard-Yale almost upon us, Amram later tells me how much she loves The Game. Amram, a teasing curl in her voice, cheers, “Go Crimson. I love sports and I love Harvard. I can’t get enough of it.”
