Mark Klempner is an independent historian and folklorist who has published internationally in history and anthropology journals such as The Oral History Review and Historia y Fuente Oral.  He has also been a guest columnist for a variety of mainstream periodicals such as the Raleigh News & Observer and the National Catholic Reporter.  Equally at home on radio and television, he has been featured as a commentator on NPR’s Morning Edition, and been interviewed on NPR member stations across the U.S., as well as regional television programs.

His education consists of a B.A. in English from Cornell University, and an M.A. in folklore from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  His academic honors include a J. William Fulbright Fellowship, the Robinson-Appel Humanitarian Award, and the Conger Wood Fellowship from Cornell’s Institute for European Studies, which enabled him to conduct the research on which his book is based.
