When we open the Houston Chronicle, we expect to get the news, but with Lisa Falkenberg’s column, we are drawn into a narrative whose path leads through a fact-based perspective to people, places, and ideas that we didn’t anticipate, that always recognizes the importance of our shared humanity.
For the past ten years, in her role as Metro columnist, Ms. Falkenberg has illuminated topics ranging from criminal justice to voter rights, from family illness to flooding, as well as city finances and political races. Winner of the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Commentary, her “vividly-written, groundbreaking column” has been recognized by innumerable organizations including the American Bar Association of Texas and Houston’s Coalition for the Homeless.
Lisa Falkenberg graduated with a journalism degree from the University of Texas at Austin in 2000. During and after college she worked with the Associated Press and was named Texas AP Writer of the Year in 2004. Since then she has been with the Chronicle and mentors students through their high school journalism program.
