Brenda Wineapple

Brenda Wineapple's recent book, 'The Impeachers: The Trial of Andrew Johnson and the Dream of a Just Nation,' is the timely telling of the first-ever impeachment of an American president that Ron Chernow called "superbly lyrical" and the 'Washington Post' hailed as "riveting." Among her other books are 'Ecstatic Nation: Confidence, Crisis, and Compromise, 1848-1877,' a 'New York Times' “100 Notable Books" that the 'Wall Street Journal' called "magnificent," and 'White Heat: The Friendship of Emily Dickinson and Thomas Wentworth Higginson,' a National Book Critics Circle award finalist, as well 'Whitman Speaks,' an edition of the poet's pithy observations about writing, literature, and America. She's received a Literature Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, a Pushcart Prize, a Guggenheim Fellowship, an American Council of Learned Societies Fellowship, a Marfield Prize, an Ambassador Award, and two National Endowment Fellowships in the Humanities; Wineapple was also named an NEH Public Scholar for 'The Impeachers.' An elected member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and of the Society of American Historians, she contributes to such publications as the 'New York Times Book Review' and 'The New York Review of Books' and is presently teaching in the MFA programs at Columbia and the New School.
