S.E. Ingraham Home School Hudson 2016 S.E. Ingraham is a writer who has learned to eschew labels. A white woman of a certain age, she knows many consider her position one of privilege (true) but, she also knows - the mantles of ageing, and mental illness provides her with an interface of disenfranchising which allows her a glimpse into other types of diversity. She knows what it is to be viewed as "less than" or even invisible. She isn't bemoaning these conditions, just recognising them for what they are - fodder for her insatiable lust for writing. As it was for many who attended Hudson Home School the summer of 2016, Ingraham felt as if she'd been granted a reprieve. Even Canadians (of whom she is one) seemed to need to step back from the election craziness just beginning to pick up speed, and the time she spent there was just the ticket. Ingraham left reinvigorated and ready to write.
