Angela Gustafson

Angela Gustafson is the author of Imagine a House: A Journey to Fascinating Houses Around the World.

In August 1994, Angela and her husband, Brian, left for the Dominican Republic to begin an incredible two-year journey as Peace Corps volunteers along the Haitian border. The culture, environment, and friendships they experienced as volunteers not only fostered a passion for learning about other cultures, but planted an idea to share that knowledge through products they would want for their own children.

Angela established Out of the Box Publishing in 1998, to make learning about the world we live in a uniquely fun experience for the young and not-so-young alike! Imagine a House makes its debut as the first book in the What a World We Live In series.

Angela, Brian, and their three young sons live in Minneapolis, MN.
