Andrew Lawler is an American journalist and author. He has written about science, archaeology, politics, and history for several publications, including National Geographic, The New York Times, Smithsonian (magazine), and Science (journal)|Science (where he is a contributing writer). He twice won the Gene S. Stuart Award from the Society for American Archaeology, and his articles have been included in The Best American Science and Nature Writing series. Lawler’s 2014 debut, which Kirkus calls “a splendid book”, Why Did the Chicken Cross the World?, tells the history of what Lawler argues is the world’s most important animal. His 2018 book, The Secret Token: Myth, Obsession, and the Search for the Lost Colony of Roanoke, which explores the first English attempt to settle the New World, is described as an “enjoyable historical adventure” in which “the themes of mingled races, of cultures clashing to create something new, are surprisingly fresh and powerful.”. The Secret Token is a national bestseller that elicited both praise and criticism for his contention that the first English child born in the New World remains a symbol of white supremacy.
