Winter-Spring, 2022 

Jenny Boylan is the author of 16 books, a Trustee of PEN America, and the Anna Quindlen Writer in Residence at Barnard College of Columbia University.

My column currently appears on the opinion page of the New York Times, usually on the first Wednesday of the month. Links to the most recent of those columns (and other current work) are below, and on the “media” page.

I’m a member of the Meteor collective, a new group of progressive and feminist-minded individuals using art and imagination to accelerate equity and equality.  I write an essay for the Meteor newsletter once a month.

My newest book, GOOD BOY: My Life in 7 Dogs, is now available from Celadon/Macmillan in paperback. Also, in hardcover and as an audiobook.

2022 will see the publication of the novel, MAD HONEY, co-authored with Jodi Picoult.  We are likely to embark on a worldwide book tour in support of the book.  Check the Appearances page for details.

I’m appearing in the Apple TV special, “Who Are You, Charlie Brown?”  I talk about queer identity, Marci, Peppermint Patty, and Pigpen.
