VJ Books Presents Author Josh Mensch!

Author Josh Mensch Josh Mensch is the coauthor of two recent books about American history, including the New York Times #2 nonfiction bestseller The First Conspiracy: The Secret Plot to Kill George Washington (Flatiron Books, 2019).

In addition to writing books, Josh has been a documentary television showrunner, writer, director, and producer. He has created a wide variety of historical, cultural, and journalistic programming for the most prominent nonfiction networks including the History Channel, PBS, National Geographic, Discovery and others.

Remarkably, two television stories that Josh wrote and directed led to the recovery of significant artifacts from American history: the iconic flag raised by firefighters at Ground Zero on 9/11 (as featured in Lost History, for the History Channel), and the electric guitar played by Bob Dylan when he famously “plugged in” at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965 (as featured in History Detectives, on PBS). Also in the realm of American history and politics, Josh has written and produced stories about subjects ranging from World War II battles, to Thomas Jefferson’s slaves, to the Hatfields & McCoys, to the early days of jazz, to the build-up to the Iraq War, to the history of superheroes.

Josh’s television credits as a showrunner, writer, director, or producer include: Superheroes Decoded (History Channel), Generation X (Nat Geo), Lost History (H2/History Channel), Frontline (PBS), History Detectives (PBS), Border Wars (Nat Geo), True Life (MTV), and others. In the course of his projects, Josh has conducted interviews with many famous and/or fascinating figures including senators, actors, film directors, historians, political activists, fashion designers and the occasional astrophysicist.

Josh grew up mostly in Buffalo, New York. He is a graduate of Princeton University and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. He currently lives in Brooklyn, New York, with his filmmaker wife and their two children.
