Elizabeth A. Nolan

International Writer/Producer

Elizabeth A. Nolan is an international writer/producer with deep experience in global health and human rights. She has received industry awards for creative initiatives ranging from website development to video production and interpretive signage.

While working with Kurdish refugees after the first Gulf War, she heard the “Myth of the 500 Virgins” for the first time and wondered if it could be re-imagined as a positive, peaceful fable about human rights. This was the genesis of her first book for children, Grania's Tears/Hêstirên Graniayê (Apec Förlag, 2016).

Elizabeth holds a master’s degree in International Relations from The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy and a bachelor’s degree in Journalism from Boston University.
