Alexandra Fuller

Alexandra Fuller was raised on the Zimbabwe side of the Zambezi, Africa’s fourth largest river. This river cut its way through her soul well before she relocated to Jackson, Wyoming. She’s written seven books, including two New York Times best-sellers, and traveled to numerous places, including Mozambique, Namibia, Chile, London, Paris, Rome, Mexico City, New York City, and Angola. Alexandra’s work has been featured in Forbes, The New York Times, Travel + Leisure, People, The Sun, The Telegraph, and National Geographic. Today, she lives in a yurt in Wyoming with her artist husband (next to a dairy farmer neighbor) and vows never to fly on a plane again, in an effort to reduce her carbon footprint.

• Wrote two New York Times best-sellers: “Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight: An African Childhood” and “Leaving Before the Rains Come”
• Grew up in Zimbabwe, Africa
• Traveled on assignment to countless countries and cities
