An essay by Associate Professor of English Paul Graham '99 has been published in Best Food Writing 2012, published in October 2012 by Da Capo Press.
The anthology, edited by Holly Hughes, includes Graham's essay "Sweet Spot," originally published in Issue 13 of Alimentum: The Literature of Food. An excerpt: "The holes go waist-high on the western side, which receives more sun and delivers more sap. I sink two taps with a rubber mallet. I reserve a third in case one dries up. Immediately the juice starts running, dribbles to the metal lip and trembles in the sunlight before falling into the bucket with a flat plunk. It seems impossible that I'll empty these buckets twenty, thirty times, but I will."
