Elizabeth Strout was born in Portland, Maine, and grew up in small towns in Maine and New Hampshire. From a young age she was drawn to writing things down, keeping notebooks that recorded the quotidian details of her days. She was also drawn to books, and spent hours of her youth in the local library lingering among the stacks of fiction. She is the author of Amy and Isabelle, Abide with Me, Olive Kitteridge, for which she won a Pulitzer Prize, and The Burgess Boys. She lives in New York City.
