Students on Stage Rehearsing with Mr. Shepard, Director of Arts
 

Dear Tower Alumni,

 

Welcome to our first edition of The Beacon, an on-line newsletter for Tower alumni and their families. I am so glad to have a chance to connect with this group. My early days at Tower have shown me how the important work we do on West Shore Drive goes out into the world with all of you. I am thrilled that so many of you are telling your stories in this publication.

The Tower alumni network spans decades and all corners of the globe. In reading these pages, I am reminded of the words of our co-founder, Helen Runnette, who said, "more than saying twelve times three, more than learning to spell, more than learning 'amo, amas, amat' are the fundamentals of learning how to think, how to apply one's knowledge, how to live with one's fellows, and how to develop one's self…" Through your actions and accomplishments, you have made manifest all that I believe Miss Runnette had hoped for when she wrote those words over one hundred years ago. It is indeed what we still hope for the Tower students of today, with you shining the light for others to follow.

 

I encourage you to visit our school blog and my head's digest to learn more about what's happening at Tower. And please keep in touch so we can know where you are -- be it here in Marblehead or a long way from the North Shore -- and how you are putting Tower's timeless values to work. Kim Trudel, who leads our alumni outreach efforts, welcomes your updates and involvement. 

 

Best,

Tim Delehaunty
Head of School

 

SPOTLIGHT ON HANNAH TINTI '87

 

Editor's Note: This summer we sat down with noted novelist Hannah Tinti '87 to discuss her highly acclaimed book "The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley." Publishers Weekly described it as "an affirmation of the way that heroism and human fallibility coexist, of how good parenting comes in unexpected packages, and of the way we are marked by our encounters with each other and the luminous universe in which we dwell." In addition to other accolades, Twelve Lives was recently named a Best Book of 2017 by the Washington Post and National Public Radio.

 

 Written by the Class of 2018 Tower Turret Editors: Paul Flacke, Patrick Jenkins, Katie Kara'a, Camilla Marte, and Alex Nassar.

 
Noted Novelist Hannah Tinti '87

What impact did Tower School have on you?
I remember very fondly Mrs. Sledge and Mr. Sloane. Mrs. Sledge had the biggest impact on me. She was so creative and full of energy. Every year we would have the school play, and she would write songs and parts for all of us, so we basically wrote our own musical. She also showed me the most impactful thing in all of the classes: a circle discussion. A circle discussion is so rare in English classes, but it's most definitely the most effective.

The circle showed me how to dig deeper into literature because the class was more of a discussion than a lecture, and this was all because of Mrs. Sledge. Tower School took away my fear of speaking up and showed me how to have confidence in my own voice.

 

What was your early life like?
Books were a very special thing in my family. I grew up with and around books because my mom was a librarian at the Brookline Library. Instead of having a special night like a movie night or taking dinner out in front of the TV, we would all bring books to dinner. I think that that is one of the reasons I became who I am today.

 

How did you get to where you are now?
I attended Tower, high school, and then college. After I graduated I got some internships. One of my first jobs was at The Spirit of '76 Bookstore in Marblehead. I later got a job at the Atlantic Monthly and became an editor for a few different magazines and publishing houses. I've always worn two hats—one as a writer and one as an editor. I probably switch back and forth between writing and editing more easily than some writers. I edit my own work, then ask a small group of friends to give me feedback.

 

At Tower, we do peer editing. We switch papers with friends so they can give us feedback on our work. Everyone edits the same copy using different pens so we know who gave us which comments.


That's a great skill to be learning. It's something I didn't do until I was in college. It also helps you learn what edits not to include. It's important to learn who to listen to and to learn to listen to your own gut. You have to feel confident in your path because people are always giving you feedback.

 

What took you down the path of being a novelist?
Well, I was actually a science major in school, so I thought I was going to be doing marine biology. I took a writing class in college, and I was like, 'oh my god, you can actually do this with your life,' so I switched majors. One of my sayings in life is always do what you love, and so I realized when I was doing science that I actually had more of an interest in writing and that's when I chose to switch over to writing, and that path led to being a novelist.

 

What advice do you have for aspiring writers?
Something that I always tell people is that you should write something that you would like to read. Don't write something you wouldn't read yourself. Don't try to be someone you're not. Think about what you like and write about that. Don't worry about being a certain type of writer. The most important thing is to leave your love on the page.

Construction crews have been busy with our campus expansion project. Several houses along the perimeter of the campus were taken down to make way for green space, additional playing fields, and carpool safety improvements. Read more about the project in a recent Marblehead Reporter article. Hats off to our former trustees whose foresight to purchase the abutting homes is making this project possible. 

The Tower Art Gallery officially opened in September. It will showcase the work of Tower's vibrant visual arts program. The gallery space includes the lobby outside of Head of School office and the corridor that leads to the Philips Library. Please stop in to see the work of our students.

IN THE CLASSROOMS

 

Tower recently published the Centennial Edition of The Turret, which we learned is the oldest K-8 independent school literary magazine in the country. Wow!

Congratulations to Mrs. Eames and the Lower School Science Club, who received an award from the New England Aquarium for their efforts to protect our oceans.

I am honored with the job of keeping them organized enough to achieve even a small fraction of their goals."

 

Other recent recognition includes Mr. Thompson and the Grade 6 students who this past spring joined thousands of other students from around the world to produce 3-D printed prosthetics for children in need of an assistive device. The project was recognized with a monetary award by the Parents' Independent School Network.
