Geraldine Brooks

Geraldine Brooks has won awards both for writing the hard-hitting truth and for spinning fiction. For the first half of her career, she was a journalist and foreign correspondent, primarily for the Wall Street Journal. She and her husband, Tony Horwitz, won the 1990 Overseas Press Club Award for their coverage of the Gulf War. She published her first novel, Year of Wonders, in 2001, and by 2006 she had won a Pulitzer Prize for her novel March. Brooks is also the author of The Secret Chord (2015), People of the Book (2008), and Caleb’s Crossing (2011).
