USA flag

Alan Gratz was born and raised in Knoxville, Tennessee, home of the 1982 World’s Fair. After a carefree but humid childhood, Alan attended the University of Tennessee, where he earned a College Scholars degree with a specialization in creative writing, and, later, a Master’s degree in English education. He now lives with his wife Wendi and his daughter Jo in the high country of Western North Carolina, where he enjoys playing games, eating pizza, and, perhaps not too surprisingly, reading books.

Alan Gratz recommends
thumb
Gut Reaction (2024)
Kirby Larson and Quinn Wyatt
"A powerful story about living with a disease and not letting it define who you are."
thumb
Big Tree (2023)
Brian Selznick
"Inspirational, important, and beautiful. A fable for our times."
thumb
Yonder (2022)
Ali Standish
"What does it mean to be a hero, and when is it all right - necessary, even - to put your own well-being ahead of others? YONDER is a thoughtful, eloquent, and honest examination of prejudice, loyalty, and what it means to be brave. I loved it."
