Being born in the middle doesn’t necessarily mean you’re fated to be in the middle of the pack.
That, I gather, is one of the points of my friend Katrin Schumann’s new book, “The Secret Power of Middle Children.”

Katrin will be appearing on NBC’s “Today” show on Thursday, August 4, sometime between 8 and 9 p.m. Tune in, if you’re able. Katrin, who I met last year when we both were resident writers at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, is smart, personable, interesting — and a really good writer of both nonfiction and fiction.
Whether you’re the first-born, youngest or a true middle child — like those little-known underachievers Abraham Lincoln, Donald Trump and Madonna — I’m betting you’ll enjoy reading Katrin’s book and seeing her on TV.
