Jessica Strand

Jessica Strand is the creator and host of NYPL’s Books at Noon, where she interviews authors about their most current work. A native New Yorker, she lived for nearly two decades in Los Angeles, where she wrote 10 cookbooks as well as weekly columns on food for The Los Angeles Times. Upon returning to New York in 2009 she became a cultural programmer and reinvented the Strand Bookstore event series, anthologizing some of these discussions in her book Upstairs at the Strand (2016). She is currently working on an anthology of poems called Love Found, which will be published early 2017.
