Rebecca Clarren

Rebecca Clarren has been a reporter for more than twenty years, writing about the American West for national magazines such as The Nation, High Country News, MotherJones and others. Her work has frequently been supported by the Fund for Investigative Journalism and has won the Hillman Prize, an Alicia Patterson Fellowship, as well as recognition from the John B. Oakes Award, the Native American Journalists' Association, the Lange-Taylor Prize and the Society for Professional Journalists. Clarren’s debut novel Kickdown, (Skyhorse Publishing, September 2018), was called, "an impressive debut," by The Washington Post and was shortlisted for the PEN/Bellwether Prize. Clarren is currently working on An American Inheritance, a book of creative nonfiction for Penguin Books that not only investigates the parallel histories of her ancestors, Jewish immigrants from Russia who received free land to homestead the South Dakota prairie, and the Lakota who were displaced onto nearby reservations, but grapples with questions of reparation, healing and cultural appropriation. A native Seattleite, she now lives in Portland with her husband and two young sons.
