About this author

I write about women, privileged and not, real (Jane Addams, Ida B. Wells, Edith and Alice Hamilton, Charlotte Perkins Gilman) and imagined (Jo March, Marjorie Morningstar). My recent book, "Well-Read Lives" tells moving stories of how young women born in Victorian times lost--and found--themselves in books and worked out a life purpose around them. By discovering the meaning of reading to women in the past, today's readers can gain insight into their own lives. I taught at Trinity College for many years and live in West Hartford, Conn. with my Maine Coon cat, Sascha.

I can't resist: There's a wonderful review of WELL-READ LIVES: HOW BOOKS INSPIRED A GENERATION OF AMERICAN WOMEN by Mary Kelley in the April issue of MODERN INTELLECTUAL HISTORY. Check it out at
