I produce nonfiction work in all media: in words, in sound, and in image, in print and online.
Greetings, seekers. This is the rather under construction web page of writer Scott Huler. It replaces an old website that was finally such a hot mess that I took it down -- that is to say, when after a brief outage its host failed to maintain the content, I allowed it to die.
So please find here the very most basic of pages. I am a writer of nonfiction -- my seventh book is in press now with the University of North Carolina Press for publication in spring 2019, so the most important thing this page offers is a link to that project: the Lawson Trek, and to my contact email. Until I get something better organized, if you want information on my books, I suggest my Amazon page; if you want to hear some of my public radio work, I suggest my NPR page, though here's a link directly to my best radio piece ever, I think (from the wonderful Splendid Table). For various video pieces, try here, and for multimedia try here. For pure writing work, here are links to my more recent work in Tablet Magazine, Charlotte Magazine, Our State Magazine, and Walter Magazine. And here's some work from Scientific American and Slate.
And I'm currently senior writer at Duke Magazine, with an archive of my work here.
Again -- this could all be prettier and better organized, and I promise you it will be. For now, I hope you can find what you need, and I hope you let me know if there's something you can't find. Someday soon(ish) the whole page will make a lot more sense.
Here's what I've done most recently
I was proud to publish this piece in Tablet Magazine about my son's bar mitzvah, during a moment of rising anti-Semitism.
Here's the Lawson Trek! Book coming in spring 2019, but website full of cool stuff is up now.
