Alum Spotlight: Carl Sciacchitano '05

Congratulations to Carl Sciacchitano '05 on his graphic memoir, The Heart That Fed: A Father, a Son, and the Long Shadow of War (Simon and Schuster, 2024). Told through the lens of the Vietnam War, the novel explores Carl's loving and tumultuous relationship with his Air Force veteran father in the following years.
As Carl recently wrote, "You probably remember me in a hallway or classroom at Burke, huddled over a sheet of paper, drawing comic books. As you read [The Heart That Fed], you'll find that a certain school on Connecticut Avenue makes an appearance (though it will always be Upton Street to me)."
