Anna Claire Weber is a nonfiction writer and translator (FR > EN, EN > FR, and some Polish > EN) based in Pittsburgh by way of upstate New York, Vermont, Belgium, and France. In addition, she is the translation editor for The Offing and the events coordinator for White Whale Bookstore. Her current writing focuses on the town of Szubin, Poland during World War II and a POW camp just outside the town where her grandfather was interned. She’s spent several weeks in Poland in 2013 and 2017 collecting oral histories of Szubin’s residents and visiting traces of war across the region and country. She has also been visiting and recording the stories of several former POWs, both from the veterans themselves and from their children.
When not writing, she is drinking coffee, baking, reading, generally outside, or watching back-to-back Stanley Cup champions the Pittsburgh Penguins.
