A. Kendra Greene is an essayist and book artist. She began her museum career in Chicago, became an essayist during a Fulbright in South Korea, learned both letterpress printing and how to costume a giant ground sloth during her MFA in Nonfiction at the University of Iowa, convinced the Dallas Museum of Art they needed a Writer in Residence, and then took up an interest in poisonous wallpaper as a Library Innovation Lab Fellow at Harvard. She is currently Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Texas at Dallas, Associate Editor for the Southwest Review, and a Visiting Artist at the Nasher Sculpture Center. The Reading Room recently hosted her first solo exhibition. Her debut collection of essays–about Icelandic museums–is forthcoming from Penguin in June 2020.
