Leslie Carol Roberts, author of The Entire Earth and Sky: Views on Antartica (University of Nebraska Press, 2008), is the world's first Fulbright Fellow in Antarctic Studies.
She has delivered talks and papers on her multidisciplinary work at the Stanford Linear Accelerator and the New Zealand Studies Association (London), as well as to scientific groups at universities in the United States and abroad.
Roberts has written hundreds of articles and essays for magazines, newspapers, and literary journals, including the Sydney Morning Herald, the Bangkok Post, the Baltimore Sun, the Bellevue Literary Review, the Christian Science Monitor, and the Iowa Review online.
She is currently at work on a play about the life of Frank Arthur Worsley, Shackleton's captain; a natural history of her life among coyotes, slugs, and the occasional skunk in the Presidio National Park; and the second part of her Antarctic trilogy.
Selected as 2009's distinguished writer in residence at St. Mary's College in Moraga, California, Roberts currently serves as an adjunct professor in two CCA MFA programs: writing and graduate design.
