Nancy Rubin Stuart

NANCY RUBIN STUART has been writing since she was nine years old. An award-winning author/journalist she specializes in women's history and the world around them. Long before the METOO# movement Nancy's book highlighted the lives of important, but often forgotten women. Nancy's eighth nonfiction book, "Poor Richard's Women" was published in March 2022. This ground-breaking book traces the little-known stories of the women Benjamin Franklin loved and lost throughout his life. The reviews have been glowing. Library Journal gave it a starred rating and recommended it "for lovers of biography, American history and women's studies. This is a terrific read; poignant, provocative and probing." Publisher's Weekly described it as a 'fresh perspective" on Franklin and predicted "history buffs will be fascinated." Kirkus called it '"a revealing document about early American history." Nancy's earlier book "Defiant Brides: The Untold Story of Two Revolutionary-Eva Women and the Radical Men They Married" was a selection of the Book-of-the-Month Club-2, the History Book Club and the Military Book Club. Other acclaimed books include The Muse of the Revolution:" "The Reluctant Spiritualist", "American Empress;" "Isabella of Castile;" "The Mother Mirror" and "The New Suburban Woman." (The last four on this list appeared under her previous pen name, Nancy Rubin). Nancy has appeared on national television, been interviewed on national radio, including NPR's "Morning Edition." She often speaks before live audiences and book clubs, and more recently on podcasts and Zoom. Her journalistic work includes New York Times, the Huffington Post, New England Quarterly, American History and other national magazines.
