Constance Grady is a senior correspondent on the Culture team for Vox, where since 2016 she has covered books, publishing, gender, celebrity analysis, and theater.

Constance has completed the National Critics Institute and the Columbia Publishing Course. Prior to writing for Vox, she worked in book publishing. She thinks it’s neat that Octavia Spencer played an Ugly Betty character named Constance Grady, but she does wish the character weren’t an ICE agent.
