Next in this year’s interview series, say hello to Ziporah Hildebrandt, who joins us from Hollywood during her workshop week.
Stuart: Ziporah, hello, and welcome to the Writers of the Future family!
Ziporah: Hi Stuart, thanks for inviting me to visit.
Stuart: To start us off, what can you tell me about yourself that would surprise your friends?
Ziporah: Well, I don’t know about friends, but I have a Post-it with “Surprise!” written on it that I move around the house to make my husband laugh when he opens a drawer or picks up the dustpan.
Ziporah: I grow heirloom garlic, breed tree peonies, and dye silk with homemade plant dyes from my garden, using traditional Japanese shibori methods as well as my own designs. I also like to take photos of flowers and ice and clouds.
Ziporah: I grew up down the road from the estate used in The Philadelphia Story with Katherine Hepburn.
