Biography | show moreshow less
Ann Landers was the pen name of Esther Pauline "Eppie" Lederer, an American advice columnist and writer born on July 4, 1918, in Sioux City, Iowa. She became one of the most widely syndicated and influential advice columnists in the United States. Her column, "Ask Ann Landers," was a staple in newspapers across the country and was known for its straightforward, often witty advice on a wide range of personal and social issues.

Lederer took over the existing "Ask Ann Landers" column in the Chicago Sun-Times in 1955. She quickly revitalized the column and made it her own, winning over a large and dedicated readership. Her approach to advice-giving combined compassion with a no-nonsense attitude, which resonated with millions of readers. Her column covered various topics, from marital problems and child-rearing to drug abuse and sexuality. Landers was known for her progressive views on many social issues, including women's rights and homosexuality. She often consulted with experts to provide informed responses to the more complex and sensitive questions.

Lederer's influence extended beyond her column. She was a frequent guest on television and radio shows and often spoke at college campuses and public events. Her opinions and advice reflected broader societal changes and attitudes, making her a significant figure in American culture.

Ann Landers' twin sister, Pauline Phillips, was also a famous advice columnist known as Abigail Van Buren or "Dear Abby." The sisters had a complicated relationship, both personally and professionally, as they were competitors in the same field.

Lederer was not just a columnist but also an author. She published several books that compiled her advice columns, offering wisdom and guidance on various topics.
