Brooks calls Kowitt's August piece on the grocery store chain, Trader Jones, "eye-popping."

Kowitt, who joined Fortune immediately after graduating from Columbia Journalism School, was also the subject of a profile in the most recent issue of Bowdoin magazine.

Read Kowitt's article, "Inside the Secret World of Trader Joe's."
