The following piece appeared on The Huffington Post on July 10.

To celebrate Howard Gardner's 70th birthday last July 11, 2013, his former student, Mindy Kornhaber, and his wife, Ellen Winner, decided to host a Festschrift in his honor. They invited Howard's teachers, peers, fellow scholars, and former students to contribute essays. One hundred and sixteen of Howard's close colleagues created essays inspired by their work and relationships with him. Upon reading these essays, Gardner decided to respond to each one. The result, Mind, Work, and Life: A Festschrift on the Occasion of Howard Gardner's 70th Birthday, is a unique and remarkable record and gift. One year later... I invited Howard, Mindy and Ellen to share their 3 X 5 = 15 Lessons from a Festschrift. It is my pleasure to share their reflections with you today in The Global Search for Education.
