|New York Times bestselling author Alexandra Robbins has been called “a media celebrity” and “One of, if not the most, widely read journalists under age 35.” She regularly appears on television shows such as 60 Minutes, Today, Oprah, The View, CNN News and The Colbert Report – for which she was voted one of the top guests of the year by Colbert Nation. |
Robbins has developed a riveting signature style of investigative journalism that reads like a fast-paced work of fiction. Her sixth book, The Geeks Shall Inherit The Earth: Popularity, Quirk Theory, and Why Outsiders Thrive After High School is about the secrets of popularity and the triumph of outsiders – in adulthood and as students. Early reviews have called it “phenomenal nonfiction,” “humorous and touching,” and “thoroughly engaging.”
The winner of the 2007 Heartsongs award for contributions to the mental health of children and young adults, Robbins is also a frequent judge for the National MS Society’s Books for a Better Life Awards. As the New York Times reported in a profile of Robbins in May, she does indeed have a giant cardboard Yoda nailed to the wall of her foyer.
Robbins will personally inscribe copies of The Geeks Shall Inherit The Earth, which will be available for purchase at an exclusive Comic-Con discount (cash or check only).
