Page Evans, Author of "Page's Turn"

Page Evans lives in Georgetown with her two daughters and Angus, their black Lab. Her articles have appeared in The Washington Post, Washingtonian and various other publications. Her essay on motherhood, “Sharks and Jets,” is in “Mommy Wars,” (Random House, 2006). She also has a piece in “2 To Do Before I Die,” (Little Brown, 2005). She is currently working on a book of essays about daughters, dating, divorce and dogs. Growing up in Wilmington, Delaware, in a politically and culturally charged household exposed Page to many points of view. Her father was the former co-chair of the Republican National Committee before becoming the US Representative from Delaware. He now lobbies for environmental causes. Her mother is an artist whose work is in several museums, including the National Museum for Women in the Arts here in Washington. Page says having a political father and artistic mother was an interesting mix. “At one point in the 70s, my mother was marching against the Vietnam War while my father was working for Nixon. She wound up on Nixon’s black list. Let’s just say, our dinner conversations were never boring!”
