She is a staff writer at The New Yorker, and her essays and reviews have also appeared in The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, The American Scholar, and in scholarly journals including the Journal of American History, The American Historical Review, and American Quarterly. Her 2013 biography of Jane Franklin Mecom, "Book of Ages," was a finalist for the 2013 National Book Award for Nonfiction.
