Lisa Frazier Page is an articles editor at The Washington Post magazine. She has worked at the newspaper since 1995 in various jobs, including reporter, columnist and director of newsroom recruiting. She also spent nearly 10 years at The Times Picayune, the daily newspaper in New Orleans, where she was an award-winning Metro page columnist and reporter. As a reporter for the paper in 1994, she traveled to South Africa to cover the election of Nelson Mandela as that country’s first black president.

Lisa also is co-author of the New York Times best-seller, “The Pact: Three Young Men Make a Promise and Fulfill A Dream,” first published in 2002 by Riverhead Books, a division of Penguin Putnam. The book, which won the national Books For A Better Life Award, has had a long life, thanks to its regular spot on high school and college reading lists throughout the country. Among the national praise for the book:
- "This is truly a life-changing book, one that shows that anything is possible...with a little help from our friends."—James McBride, author of The Color of Water and Miracle at St. Anna
- "A powerful message of hope."—Dallas Morning News
- “Gripping, courageous, and inspiring."—Philadelphia Inquirer
- "After you've read it, pass it on...The Pact is a book that should never end up on a shelf because it is probably the most important book for African-American families that has been written since the protest era...Besides their personal stories, the doctors share practical steps that can be useful to a circle of friends in making their own pact...Get The Pact. It just may change a teen's future." —Chicago Sun-Times

Lisa holds a master’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, and a bachelor’s in English from Dillard University in New Orleans, where she attended on a full-tuition scholarship. She grew up in Bogalusa, Louisiana, a small paper mill town about 60 miles outside New Orleans. She is married and lives outside Washington, D.C., with her husband and three children.
