Alexandra Risen is the best-selling author of UNEARTHED, a meditation on love, family and cultural legacy, and our interconnectedness with nature. In the memoir, Alexandra restores a historic garden while she examines her parents’ history through their war years, and as part of the Ukrainian diaspora of Canada. UNEARTHED garnered excellent US literary reviews from Publishers Weekly, Kirkus, Library Journal and Booklist (starred review), and spent four weeks on the Canadian national non-fiction bestseller list. She is one of three co-founding editors of the not-for-profit online literary magazine donttalktomeaboutlove.org, which explores love in literary and art forms. Devoted to nature and a closet geologist, Alexandra lives with her husband, son, and rescued dog, Hunter.
