Drinking Diaries

Caren Osten Gerszberg writes essays and feature articles on just about any topic--but mostly travel and education. A contributor to The New York Times, Caren wrote a bi-weekly column, Mom U, for the education blog, "The Choice," about her daughter's college admissions process.

Caren’s work has appeared in The New York Times, National Geographic Traveler, Travel & Leisure, Town & Country, Cosmopolitan, Time Out NY, Child, Parents, Cookie, the International Herald Tribune and others. She recently started blogging for The Huffington Post and Psychology Today.

She is the co-founder and editor of the Drinking Diaries, a blog about women and drinking. An anthology of essays, Drinking Diaries: Women Serve Their Stories Straight Up (Seal Press), in which 28 women write about their relationship with alcohol--the good, bad and in between--was published in September 2012.
