Author Event: Steve Luxenberg

A 30-year writer and senior editor at The Washington Post, Steve Luxenberg has overseen reportage that has won a host of awards, including two Pulitzer Prizes for explanatory journalism. He is the author of Annie’s Ghosts: A Journey in a Family Secret, the tale of his eponymous aunt who was locked away in a mental institution and seemingly erased from his mother’s memory. In Separate, Luxenberg unearths the Philadelphia-born court case that established the idea of "separate but equal" in the courtroom, thus creating legal precedent for the landmark Plessy v. Ferguson case.
