C.S. Manegold served as a foreign correspondent, national correspondent, war reporter, and general assignment writer on the staffs of The New York Times, Newsweek, and the Philadelphia Inquirer before turning her attention to teaching and book-length nonfiction. Her freelance articles have appeared in publications as diverse as Rolling Stone, Art News, International Economy and Harper's Bazaar as well as various online publications.

Manegold’s first book, “In Glory's Shadow: Shannon Faulkner, The Citadel and a Changing America,” (Knopf, 2000) was included in the Los Angeles Times's list of best non-fiction 2000.  Her latest book,  “Ten Hills Farm: The Forgotten History of Slavery in the North,” details the history of 150 years of African and Native American enslavement on a 600-acre farm just north of Boston. Manegold's research for these projects has been supported by grants and fellowships from the NEH, Harvard University's W.E.B. Dubois Research Institute, The Newhouse Center for the Humanities at Wellesley College and the American Antiquarian Society. 

In 2001, Manegold was named the James M. Cox, Jr. Professor of Journalism at Emory University. Now at Mount Holyoke College in Western Massachusetts, she teaches writing-intensive classes within the Nexus in Journalism, Media and Public Discourse track, supports a small core of special majors in journalism and narrative nonfiction and serves with pride as a mentor to any student who wants to think and scribble for a living.
