Journalist and poet Eliza Griswold received a Guggenheim Fellowship for her ongoing reportage on water and poverty in America. Her first non-fiction book, The Tenth Parallel, was awarded the Anthony J. Lukas Prize and was a New York Times bestseller. Her work has appeared in The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker and The Atlantic, among many others. Her collection of articles and translations of Afghan folk poetry, I am the Beggar of the World, was published earlier this year by Farrar, Straus and Giroux, with a second collection of her poems to follow.
