She writes, “History is to a great degree an imaginative enterprise; when writing it or reading it, we try to see the subjects in their time and space. Imagining requires some starting point of connection." Professor Gordon-Reed is the author of The Hemingses of Monticello: An American Family, which won the Pulitzer Prize in history and the National Book Award for nonfiction. Her most recent book is "Most Blessed of the Patriarchs": Thomas Jefferson and the Empire of the Imagination, written in collaboration with historian Peter S. Onuf.
