Katie Scarlett Brandt
Chicago-based writer Katie Scarlett Brandt recently completed the biography of world-renowned cancer geneticist Janet Rowley. For her latest project, Katie travels between Chicago and Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota to tell the story of Lakota native Delores Takes War Bonnet, interweaving the broader religious and cultural persecutions that the tribe has incurred during Delores’ lifetime. Learn more about the project (as well as Katie’s dogs, favorite bands, and miscellaneous adventures) on Twitter and Instagram: @katiehappens.
