[FBC31] Joanne Ramos, author of The Farm

“I never set out to write a dystopia. What I really wanted to write about were these ideas from being an outsider throughout my life. One in particular is this idea that America is a meritocracy.” – Joanne Ramos

Joanne Ramos was born in the Philippines and moved to Wisconsin when she was six. She graduated with a B.A. from Princeton University. After working in investment banking and private-equity investing for several years, she became a staff writer at The Economist. She currently serves on the board of The Moth. Her debut novel, The Farm, is a national bestseller in the United States and Canada.
