With a degree in political science from Barnard College and a Master's in Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania, Rachel Slade is a journalist who likes to explore the intersection of politics, design, and technology. Rachel worked as an architectural designer at Boston's Leers Weinzapfel Associates before joining the Boston magazine editorial staff in 2007. Her investigative piece on the Boston Redevelopment Authority won a national civic journalism award in 2014, while her provocative essays on the city's architecture, development, and high real estate costs have earned her a reputation as a truth-telling curmudgeon. In October 2016, Yankee magazine ran her longform narrative about the sinking of the container ship El Faro. A book based on that story will be published by Ecco, an imprint of HarperCollins, in May 2018. She splits her time between Brookline, Massachusetts, and Rockport, Maine.
