Karen Christensen is a publishing entrepreneur, activist, and author who writes about women and power, community, and climate change. She founded the Train Campaign and is a research associate at the Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies at Harvard. Information on her books-in-progress can be found at the links above. This blog feed comes from the section Writing a Woman’s Life, with an emphasis on the Valerie (Mrs T S) Eliot story.
