Alexis Coe

Alexis Coe

Alexis Coe is a historian. She is the New York Times Bestselling Author of You Never Forget Your First: A Biography of George of Washington and Alice+Freda Forever: A Murder in Memphis (soon to be a major motion picture)

You may be looking for "Alexis Taines-Coe," as Alexis was incorrectly identified in the History Channel series Washington, which she was also a consulting producer on! She worked with Doris Kearns Goodwin and Railsplitter on the three part series (February 2020). She is the host of "No Man's Land" from The Wing/Pineapple and co-hosted "Presidents Are People Too!" from Audible. Alexis curated the ACLU'S 100 exhibition and was the assistant curator of the NYPL's centennial exhibition in Bryant Park. 

She has appeared on CNN, the History Channel, C-SPAN, and CBS, and lectured at Columbia, West Point, Georgetown, Sarah Lawrence, NYU, the New School, the University of San Francisco, and many others. She has given talks sponsored by Hulu, Chanel, and Madewell. 

In 2016 and 2017, Alexis' work was included in The Best American Essays (about living a feminist Walden in California in Pacific Standard) and The Best American Travel Essays (the New Republic sent her on a seven day, mult-state wagon ride to reenact the Gold Rush), and in 2013, her essay on how marriage helps male professors get ahead was one of the Atlantic's Great Debates of the Year. She has contributed to the New Yorker, the New York Times' opinion section, the New York Times Magazine, the New Republic, the Paris Review, Elle, and many others.

While in grad school, Alexis was a project based oral historian at the Brooklyn Historical Society, and after graduating, she was a Research Curator in the Exhibitions Department at the New York Public Library in Bryant Park. 

Alexis much prefers her native California, but lives in New York.
