Biography

Alexandria Giardino lives in northern California, where she teaches writing, practices karate (she’s a black belt!), and rides her mountain bike all over Mt Tam. Alex grew up in the Bay Area, but she has also lived in great big cities, from New York to Los Angeles, Mexico City, and Santiago, Chile. In addition to her books, her writing has appeared in the Village Voice Literary Supplement, Ms., Marie Claire, The American Poetry Review, and on air at KQED. Her first picture book, Ode to an Onion, inspired by the poet Pablo Neruda, is a Junior Library Guild Selection for 2018. Two more children’s books are forthcoming in 2020.
