Adrian Nicole LeBlanc, author of Random Family, is a Freelancers Union member--and now she's a certifiable genius, too. Today, the MacArthur Foundation released its annual list of fellows, recipients of the organization's prestigious "genius" grants.
This year's list is characteristically diverse: the fellows range from biologists and engineers to sculptors and playwrights. Many of the geniuses, you'll note, are "unaffiliated," and they probably fit the definition of "independent workers." Freelancers Union congratulates all of this year's independent-minded MacArthur Fellows--but especially member Adrian LeBlanc!
