Clara Hemphill is an acclaimed author, editor and social entrepreneur. The New York Times called her three books “the most definitive guides” to New York City public schools. New York magazine named her one of the 200 most influential New Yorkers for her work “empowering parents” as founding editor of the Insideschools.org website. As a reporter and editorial writer for New York Newsday, she shared the 1991 Pulitzer Prize for local reporting. New York magazine called her writing on the homeless “worthy of Dickens.” A foreign correspondent for The Associated Press and a producer for CBS News based in Rome in the 1980s, she covered the war in Lebanon, the attempted assassination of the pope and numerous Mafia murders. She lives in Manhattan with her husband, Robert Snyder, and two children, who attend public school.
