Billy Baker



Billy Baker writes about the outdoors for the Globe, through narrative features and first-person misadventures. His first book, “We Need to Hang Out: A Memoir of Making Friends,” was published by Simon & Schuster in 2021, and grew out of a Globe Magazine article about how men stink at friendship. Baker is a graduate of Boston Latin School, Tulane University and the Columbia Journalism School, and is a recipient of the Deborah Howell Award for Writing Excellence from the American Society of News Editors.
