Fern Schumer Chapman is the author of several award-winning books. Viking/Penguin released her most recent book, Brothers, Sisters, Strangers: Sibling Estrangement and the Road to Reconciliation, in 2021. She writes a blog on psychologytoday.com called "Brothers, Sisters, Strangers," and compiled some of those posts into her most recent work, The Sibling Estrangement Journal: A Guided Exploration of Your Experience through Writing. She self-published this work through her own publishing company, Gussie Rose Press.
Her memoir, Motherland (Viking/Penguin), a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers selection, a finalist for the National Jewish Book Award, and a BookSense76 pick - is a popular choice for book clubs. Her other books, Is It Night or Day? (FSG, Scholastic), Like Finding My Twin, Stumbling on History, Like Finding My Twin, and Three Stars in the Night Sky are used in middle school classrooms. Gussie Rose Press released several of these books, and some were selected by the Junior Library Guild and have won awards. In 2004, the Illinois Association of Teachers of English (IATE) named Chapman the "Illinois Author of the Year." Twice, Oprah Winfrey shows have featured her books.
