About Craig

craig fehrman headshot

I’m the author of Author in Chief: The Untold Story of Our Presidents and the Books They Wrote. I’ve also written for The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal, among others, and been interviewed on NPR’s Morning Edition and All Things Considered. (You can find some of my favorite stories here.)

I grew up near Dillsboro, Indiana, and graduated from the University of Southern Indiana in 2007. I spent six years in Connecticut, working on a PhD at Yale University that I never quite completed. In 2013, I moved back to Indiana with my wife, who works in publishing; we live in Bloomington with our two children.

You can find me posting about books and presidents on Twitter, Instagram, and Goodreads. If you want to get in touch, email me here.

If you have a media request, email my amazing publicist, Jordan Rodman.

Katy Lengacher did the above headshot — if you live in central Indiana, you won’t find a better photographer!
