I’m a working writer. And a teacher. The best way to find out what I write is to visit my author web site.

That site has information about my books, my essays and articles, and links to video and audio recordings of lectures, book talks, and public appearances.

See you there!

Here’s my bio.

Jessica Handler is the author of Invisible Sisters: A Memoir (The
University of Georgia Press, 2015, Public Affairs Books, 2009) named by
the Georgia Center for the Book one of the “Twenty Five Books All
Georgians Should Read.” Atlanta Magazine called it the “Best Memoir of
2009.” Her second book, Braving the Fire: A Guide to Writing About Grief and
Loss (St. Martins Press, December 2013) was praised by Vanity Fair
magazine as “a wise and encouraging guide.” Her nonfiction has appeared
on NPR, in Tin House, Drunken Boat, Brevity, Newsweek, The Washington
Post, and More Magazine. Honors include residencies at the Josef and Anni
Albers Foundation, a 2010 Emerging Writer Fellowship from The Writers
Center, the 2009 Peter Taylor Nonfiction Fellowship, and special mention
for a 2008 Pushcart Prize. Featured as one of nine contemporary Southern
women writers in Vanity Fair magazine, she learned to never again wear
couture.
