Journalist Beth Macy is the author of three New York Times-bestselling nonfiction books. Her 2014 Lukas Prize-winning “Factory Man: How One Furniture Maker Battled Offshoring, Stayed Local — and Helped Save an American Town,” traced the aftereffects of globalization in America. Her 2016 book, “Truevine: Two Brothers, A Kidnapping, and a Mother’s Quest,” was a Kirkus Prize finalist and longlisted for the Carnegie Prize. Both books are in development for film/television.
So is her 2018 exploration of the opioid crisis, “Dopesick: Dealers, Doctors and the Drug Company That Addicted America.” Her latest book, shortlisted for the Carnegie Prize in nonfiction, was an instant bestseller and was named to several best book of the year lists. Macy has also published in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and O, the Oprah magazine. Based out of Roanoke, Virginia, for three decades, Macy was a Nieman Fellow in Journalism at Harvard in 2010.
