Eugenie Bird

Eugenie Bird has taught art, edited books for Senator Adlai Stevenson, assisted the director of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, and created a cultural history program for grammar schools. She is also a certified arc welder. In her spare time, she says she enjoys all sorts of things: “Reading, art, writing, gardening, cooking-which I try to do as well as I can. I like to surprise myself.” The author and her husband raised two children and now divide their time between Chicago and their Vermont farm, which they share with a thriving fairie community.
