Noon Edition

Journalist and Author Alexandra Robbins

Journalist Alexandra Robbins goes where other reporters fear to tread. For her book "Secrets of the Tomb," she risked angering powerful alumni of the secret Skulls and Bones society at Yale University; to write "Pledged," she disguised herself as an undergraduate for an academic year and followed four sorority women to investigate the inner workings of sororities.

She is the co-author of "Quarterlife Crisis" and author of "Conquering Your Quarterlife Crisis," which explore the problems faced by twenty-year-olds, and "The Overachievers: The Secret Lives of Driven Kids." She has written for a variety of publications, including the New Yorker, the Atlantic Monthly, the Washington PostCosmopolitan, and Salon.
