Nancy Pick writes nonfiction books, usually but not always about science.
She is the author of The Rarest of the Rare (HarperCollins/ Scala Arts), which tells the stories behind the natural history museum at Harvard.
In her book Curious Footprints (Amherst College Press), she reveals how Prof. Edward Hitchcock amassed Amherst College’s world-class collection of dinosaur tracks. Strangely enough, he did not believe they were made by dinosaurs.
She’s also working with a team of scientists on the book Do Plants Know Math (Princeton University Press, forthcoming), about the fascinating and beautiful spirals found in plants.
A graduate of Amherst College, she was a reporter for the Baltimore Evening Sun and a journalism fellow at Yale Law School.
Nancy works closely with the MHC Group to craft language and storylines for the Possibly podcast.
