Brooke Lea Foster
Brooke Lea Foster came to The Washingtonian after working at The Washington Monthly and the Chronicle of Higher Education. She writes about social issues, and has contributed articles about education, sports, children and families, immigration, prisons, and philanthropy. Her work has appeared in Reader’s Digest, Good Housekeeping, Parents magazine, Psychology Today and People, among others. Foster’s first book The Way They Were: Dealing with Your Parents' Divorce After a Lifetime of Marriage (Crown, January 2006) uses memoir and reportage to give voice to the growing numbers of grown children dealing with their parents’ late life divorce.

Foster is the recipient of numerous Dateline Awards given by the Washington Society of Professional Journalists. Her 2003 story about illegal teenagers in the Latino American community was a finalist for the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism for excellence in reporting on children and families. In 2005, Foster was a finalist for the Livingston Award for Young Journalists, the highest honor given to a journalist under 35.
