Prior to LTYM, SARAH PHARAON’s last great writing feat was “You’re A Grand Old Dad,” a poem given to her father in 1980-something which was admittedly, eighty percent plagiarized.   

The founding curator of the Arab American National Museum and a former Director of Education at the Lower East Side Tenement Museum, Sarah now trains museum staff and historians around the world how to better talk with their public about difficult histories as Senior Director of the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience.  

Sarah selects scripts for the Chatham Players mainstage and summer one-act festival and keeps herself sane by acting in one show a year, most recently earning a Perry Nomination for her performance in To Kill a Mockingbird at Summit Playhouse.  

Raised in Northeastern Pennsylvania, Sarah and her husband met at Franklin and Marshall College and live in South Orange with their two children, Norah and Rami on the most amazingly talented and supportive block in our town.
