Steve Luxenberg, a Washington Post associate editor and award-winning author, began his newspaper career at The Baltimore Sun in 1974. In his 25 years at The Post, he has headed the newspaper’s investigative staff and Sunday Outlook section. Post reporters working with Steve have won two Pulitzer Prizes.

Steve’s award-winning nonfiction book, Annie’s Ghosts: a Journey into a Family Secret—part detective story, part social history, part memoir—was named to The Washington Post’s Best Books of 2009 list, and honored as a 2010 Michigan Notable Book by the Library of Michigan. It has been featured on NPR’s All Things Considered and the Diane Rehm Show.

Steve also has a TV “credit”—look carefully, and you’ll see him as an extra in HBO’s “The Wire.” (Hint: A three-second headshake in season five.) He and his wife, Mary Jo Kirschman, a former school librarian, live in Baltimore and have two adult children.
