Hen&ink Coop: Kathryn Kramer

About Kathryn Kramer

Kathryn Kramer was born in Annapolis, Maryland and grew up there and in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Since then she has lived all over the U.S. and in several foreign countries; she now lives in Vermont, where she teaches writing and literature at Middlebury College. She has published several novels for adults (A Handbook for Visitors from Outer Space, Rattlesnake Farming, and Sweet Water) and will be publishing a memoir about her education, entitled Missing History: The Covert Education of a Child of the Great Books, arising out of her experience growing up as a faculty child at St. John’s College and her thinking about what people really learn in school besides the subjects they’re taught. It will be available by mid-June from Threshold Way Publishing. She’s published short fiction, non-fiction, and book reviews and has been the recipient of fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the Ingram Merrill Foundation, and the Vermont Arts Council, among others. She teaches English to migrant workers in Vermont and with a Middlebury student has written a textbook called Welcome to Vermont: English for Working and Living (free to download and use but not resell from www.osymigrant.org)
