Lois Leveen

Award-winning author Lois Leveen dwells in the spaces where literature and history meet.  A confirmed book geek, Lois earned degrees in history and literature from Harvard, the University of Southern California, and UCLA, and taught at UCLA and at Reed College. She is a regular contributor to Disunion, the New York Times coverage of the sesquicentennial of the Civil War, and her poetry and essays have appeared in numerous books, literary journals, and on NPR.  Lois gives talks about American history and literature at libraries, bookstores, universities, museums, teacher training programs, and conferences throughout the country.  She lives in a bright green house in Portland, Oregon, with a charming, bipedal Newfoundlander.
