Lee Krishnan, from Mumbai, India, completed her coursework for her Master's degree from the Bread Loaf School of English by attending ABL's summer program, the Andover Bread Loaf Writing Workshop (ABLWW). Her dear friend and long-distance colleague, Mary Guerrero, threw a graduation party for her at Cafe Azteca in Lawrence, which is Mary's family restaurant. Lee's friends came down from Bread Loaf's Vermont campus to join the festivities. Included in the party were people from 7 different U.S. states and 5 different countries. Lee first met Mary in 1998 when both were participants in the ABLWW.
