Anna Claire Weber


Anna Claire Weber is a nonfiction writer and translator based in Pittsburgh by way of upstate New York, Vermont, Belgium, and France. In addition, she is the translation editor for The Offing. Her current writing focuses on the town of Szubin during World War II and a POW camp just outside the town where her grandfather was interned. The 2017 recipient of the Polish Room Award, part of the university's Nationality Rooms Scholarship program, she spent several weeks in Poland collecting oral histories of Szubin's residents and visiting traces of war across the region and country. She has also been visiting and recording the stories of several former POWs, both from the veterans themselves and from their children. 

When not writing, she is drinking coffee, baking, reading, generally outside, or watching back-to-back Stanley Cup champions the Pittsburgh Penguins. Find her at
