Stephanie Elizondo Griest

Viebranz Visiting Professor of Creative Writing

Stephanie Elizondo Griest has mingled with the Russian Mafia, polished Chinese propaganda and danced with Cuban rumba queens. These adventures inspired her award-winning memoirs Around the Bloc: My Life in Moscow, Beijing, and Havana; Mexican Enough: My Life Between the Borderlines; and the guidebook 100 Places Every Woman Should Go. As a national correspondent for The Odyssey, she once drove 45,000 miles across America in a Honda Hatchback named Bertha. She has won a Hodder Fellowship to Princeton, a Margolis Award for Social Justice Reporting and a Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Gold Prize.
