New York Times investigative journalist Andrea Elliott puts a human face to topics ranging from child poverty to Muslim life in the U.S. Her recent five-part series, Invisible Child, examined homelessness through the lens of an 11-year-old Brooklyn girl. The series won a George Polk Award, helped reignite a conversation about the dire state of poverty in America and inspired a book to be released in October 2021. Previously, Elliott’s coverage of Islam in America broke new ground in the study of radicalization and earned her a Pulitzer Prize for feature writing.
