Andrea Barnet is the author of All-Night Party: The Women of Bohemian Greenwich Village and Harlem, 1913-1930. The book was a nonfiction finalist for the 2004 Lambda Literary awards. She was a regular contributor to the New York Times Book Review for twenty-five years, and her journalism has appeared in Smithsonian Magazine, the New York Times, Self, Harper’s Bazaar, and Elle, among other outlets. Barnet’s latest work is Visionary Women: How Rachel Carson, Jane Jacobs, Jane Goodall, and Alice Waters Changed Our World (Ecco). Together, these women—linked not by friendship or field, but by their choice to break with convention—showed what one person speaking truth to power can accomplish. In its review, the Dallas News writes, “Barnet [makes] clear that women’s history is longer, richer, more important and more interlinked by time and culture than many may have realized.”
