Jacobs's first biography, Henry Kaplan and the Story of Hodgkin’s Disease, was published in 2010. Her new biography is Jonas Salk: A Life.
Recently I asked Jacobs about what she was reading. Her reply:
I tend to read and study nonfiction books. Two of my favorites are Candice Millard’s River of Doubt and more recently Daniel James Brown’s The Boys in the Boat. Both are master storytellers who have mastered the craft of narrative nonfiction.Visit Charlotte Jacobs's website.
As for fiction, I am addicted to Jhumpa Lahiri’s stories and anxiously await her next work.
