That’s right; think about JAWS–and the online JAWS Marketplace–during the upcoming weeks of holiday gift giving.
Stylish hoodies. Yoga mats. Coffee cups and water bottles. T-shirts in a myriad of styles. Outfits for the baby, the doggies and for your BFF. All emblazoned with the JAWS logo.

I spent a couple of days last fall in the basement of a library in rural Maine, picking through letters written by two sisters a century ago. I was there at the behest of the Pulitzer Prize organization, researching one of dozens of stories published this year to celebrate the prizes’ centennial.
My task was to find out about Laura Richards and Maude Howe Elliott, the first two women to ever win the Pulitzer. Together, they produced a sweeping biography of their mother, the abolitionist and suffragist Julia Ward Howe. (If that names takes you back to grade school history, it’s probably because she also wrote the Battle Hymn of the Republic.) Their accomplishment was, as I noted in the story, especially remarkable given the limited opportunities for women during that time.
