Amy Dickinson

Columnist and author Amy Dickinson is better known by the title of her nationally syndicated Chicago Tribune column, “Ask Amy.” She has been the Tribune’s primary advice columnist since 2003. Before that, she wrote for Time magazine, contributed to NPR’s All Things Considered, and was a producer for NBC News. Since 2006, Dickinson has been a regular panelist on the NPR show Wait Wait...Don’t Tell Me! Her first memoir, The Mighty Queens of Freeville: A Mother, a Daughter, and the Town That Raised Them (2009), in which she detailed the dissolution of her first marriage and her subsequent return to her hometown, was a bestseller. In 2013, her advice columns were collected and published as Ask Amy: Advice for Better Living. Her second memoir and latest book, Strangers Tend to Tell Me Things: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Coming Home, picks up her life story at the end of her first memoir and chronicles falling back in love and raising her family.
