Writer, editor and longtime Yankee Magazine contributor Edie Clark will be on campus Sunday, Jan. 23, 2011, as part of the N.H. Authors Series. Join humorist Rebecca Rule at 2 p.m. in Dimond Library as she interviews the New Hampshire writer.
Clark’s work has established her reputation as a writer of ordinary lives changed by extraordinary acts or circumstances. Her column, “Mary’s Farm,” has been a fixture in the Yankee since 1990.
She is the author of a memoir, “The Place He Made” as well as two essay collections, “The View from Mary’s Farm” and “Saturday Beans and Sunday Suppers: Kitchen Stories from Mary’s Farm.”Her latest book is “States of Grace: Encounters with Real Yankees.”
A fellow at The MacDowell Colony and visiting writer at Northern Michigan University, Clark currently teaches at Franklin Pierce University.
Three times a year, the N.H. Authors Series features writers who live, teach or are native to New Hampshire. Interviews are conducted in front of a live audience (with an opportunity for questions from the audience) and recorded by New Hampshire Public Television for future broadcast and web streaming on www.nhptv.org/authors
The interview takes place at 2 p.m. in the library’s fifth floor reading room, after which Clark will sign her books. The program is free and open to the public, but seating is limited.
