Anna Duke Reach
Hometown — Washington, D.C.
Anna Duke Reach grew up in faculty housing on several college campuses, where she enjoyed lively communal living as long as there was a tree to climb when she wanted to read. Hailing from Washington, D.C., Anna graduated from Colgate University and moved to New York City to work in publishing at George Braziller, Knopf, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Between children and moves, she's worked in arts administration for the Atlanta Olympic Committee, The Columbus Museum of Art, Jefferson Center for Learning and the Arts, as well as Thurber House. With all three of her children now launched into the world, Anna and her husband moved to Gambier, Ohio, where she works at Kenyon College as the programs director for the Kenyon Review. She is happy to have come full circle, returning to life on a college campus.
