About this author

Ann Brashares grew up in Chevy Chase, Maryland, with three brothers and attended a Quaker school in the D.C. area called Sidwell Friends. She studied Philosophy at Barnard College, part of Columbia University in New York City. Expecting to continue studying philosophy in graduate school, Ann took a year off after college to work as an editor, hoping to save money for school. Loving her job, she never went to graduate school, and instead, remained in New York City and worked as an editor for many years. Ann made the transition from editor to full-time writer with her first novel, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Ann and her husband live with their three children in New York.


Ann Brashares isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but she does have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from her feed.


“The great hits of history go along without the notice of most. I read about them in books like everybody else.” -My Name is Memory

“Maybe the truth is, there's a little bit of loser in all of us. Being happy isn't having everything in your life be perfect. Maybe it's about stringing together all the little things.”
Ann Brashares, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

“Parents were the only ones obligated to love you; from the rest of the world you had to earn it.”
Ann Brashares, Forever in Blue: The Fourth Summer of the Sisterhood

“Maybe, sometimes, it's easier to be mad at the people you trust because you know they'll always love you, no matter what.”
Ann Brashares, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
