Edie Clark has been a writer and editor of books and magazines for almost 40 years. She has written extensively about New England in award-winning feature stories for Yankee magazine, where she served as Senior Editor and Fiction Editor for more than twenty years. Her ongoing column for the magazine, now titled “Mary’s Farm,” has been a popular feature of the magazine for many years. The New York Times Book Review described her memoir, The Place He Made, which has recently been reissued, as “a triumph of the human spirit [which] may take its quiet place among the best of the literature.” In 2001, she collaborated with the composer, Lawrence Siegel, to create Monadnock Tales, a fusion of music and poetry, which has been performed several times in the Monadnock Region, including one performance for the MacDowell Centennial celebration in 2008. She has been a fellow at the MacDowell Colony, Hedgebrook Writers Colony, and has been a visiting writer at Northern Michigan University. She is currently a contributing editor to Yankee magazine. She has taught in the MFA program at Emerson College in Boston and now teaches at Franklin Pierce University in Rindge, New Hampshire and at UMass/Amherst. She is a featured speaker for the New Hampshire Humanities Council and gives frequent talks throughout New England. Her other books include The View from Mary’s Farm, a collection of essays about her place in New Hampshire, Saturday Beans and Sunday Suppers, a food memoir with recipes from each decade, and her latest book, States of Grace: Encounters with Real Yankees, a collection of stories about ordinary people who lead extraordinary lives.
