Molly Papows is an art historian based in Lebanon, NH. She’s interested in the many ways an artist can tell a story. When she’s not nerding out over paintings at work, she’s most likely driving to the coast, a live show, or a state park with too many books stuffed into her bag.
James Napoli always lived in towns with great alt-weeklies — those free, progressive round-ups of quirky news, live events, and colorful characters. When he moved to a tiny village in Eastern Vermont, he discovered that the region needed an alternative media hub to showcase the best local arts, culture, food, and farms. So, in June 2016, he founded Junction Magazine. Over the course of the next two years, he conducted scores of interviews, edited hundreds of photos, posted thousands of events and job listings, produced more than a dozen live performances across VT and NH, and built a large following for Junction's social media and email newsletters. All of this was done on a completely not-for-profit, DIY, ad-free basis, with a volunteer staff of one. Now a digital producer at Minnesota Public Radio, James is thrilled to pass the baton on to new leadership at Junction.
