Word of South 2021

Judith Dupré

New York Times bestselling author Judith Dupré writes about art, life, and architecture. Her illustrated nonfiction has been published in 14 languages, and is beloved by readers around the globe. She writes about history as revealed through a single building type, in books that include Skyscrapers, Bridges, Churches, Monuments, and, most recently, One World Trade Center: Biography of the Building. In addition to loving stories, she’s obsessed with discovering the limits of the printed page, something that’s evident in the dynamic designs and unique bindings of her books. A graduate of Brown and Yale universities, Dupré is a 2015 National Endowment for the Humanities Public Scholar.
