Paige Williams

Paige Williams is a New Yorker staff writer and the Laventhol Visiting Professor at Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism. A winner of the National Magazine Award for feature writing, she has published magazine pieces that later appeared in anthologies including The Best American Magazine Writing and The Best American Crime Writing. Her book The Dinosaur Artist expands on “Bones of Contention,” a New Yorker piece about the million-dollar auction of an illicit Gobi Desert dinosaur skeleton, scientists’ growing concern about black-market bones, and shifting geopolitics. She has been a fellow of The MacDowell Colony and, at Harvard, the Nieman Foundation for Journalism. At The New Yorker, Williams has covered suburban politics in Detroit, capital punishment in Alabama, paleoanthropology in South Africa, and the misappropriation of cultural palimony from the Tlingit peoples of Alaska. An Ole Miss graduate, she holds an MFA from Columbia University and, usually, a gigantic cup of coffee.
