Kathleen Stone is the author of They Called Us Girls: Stories of Female Ambition from Suffrage to Mad Men.
Kathleen studied art history at Oberlin College, and holds a JD from Boston University School of Law and an MFA from Bennington College. As a lawyer, she was a law clerk to a federal district court judge, a litigation partner in a law firm, senior counsel in a financial institution, and a solo practitioner. She taught seminars on American law in six foreign countries as a Fulbright Senior Specialist and through the Center for International Legal Studies.
After many years practicing law and writing countless legal briefs, she turned to other sorts of writing. Her reviews of recent books and art exhibitions have been published in Ploughshares Blog and Arts Fuse. Other work has appeared in Los Angeles Review of Books, Pangyrus, The Timberline Review, and The Writer’s Chronicle. She also co-hosts Booklab, a literary salon, and is on the board of directors of Biographers International Organization.
Kathleen and her husband live in a brick row house in Boston and a converted bait shack on a dock in mid-coast Maine.
