Brian Fairbanks got his break as a writer at the age of 15, talking himself into a staff writer position at the Hartford Courant, America’s oldest newspaper. After serving as a protege to bestselling historians Stephen Ambrose and Douglas Brinkley at the Eisenhower Center in New Orleans, and working with them on books by or about Hunter S. Thompson, the NAACP, WWII, Jack Kerouac, and the Mississippi River, he broke out on his own as a reporter, and has written for many major media outlets, including the Guardian, Business Insider, Mic, Nerve, and both the New York Press and Observer, and was Gawker’s first investigative reporter while at their Consumerist site.

He previously collaborated on the activist primer Beautiful Trouble: A Toolbox For Revolution (OR Books) and co-authored a book of hipster baby names for Babble/Disney, hi, my name is (Chronicle Books). Beautiful Trouble was successful enough that it spawned a grassroots political movement that includes in-person activist trainings and a card game. Wizards: David Duke, The Rise of the Far Right, and America’s Wildest Election (Vanderbilt University Press, 2022) is his first book with his own name on the cover
