Jane Kohuth

headshot TENTJANE KOHUTH grew up in Brooklyn, NY, filling notebooks with poetry, journal entries, and unfinished novels. She graduated from Brandeis University with a degree in English and Creative Writing and from Harvard Divinity School with a Master’s Degree in Theological Studies. Though not all of what she’s studied makes an appearance in her work (no Biblical Hebrew yet), she finds that poetry and picture books have a lot in common. She also loves combining her interests and writing books that feature Jewish characters and themes. She has worked as a Jewish educator, a children’s room library assistant, a writing teacher, and a children’s bookseller and organizer of author events. Jane now lives and works in her house in the historic district of Holliston, Massachusetts with her husband, son, and black cat. She loves knowing that her house was built in 1871, making it the new kid on the block.
