HIGHLY ACCLAIMED, MEDIA-SAVVY BACKGROUND: In addition to having served on the board of the National Book Critics Circle; teaching at numerous prestigious writing workshops like the Paris Writers Workshop, the Summer Literary Seminars in St. Petersburg, Russia; and Sarah Lawrence, among others; and earning a number of highly acclaimed grants from institutions such as MacDowell and the New York Foundation for the Arts; Laurie Stone has deep connections to the Village Voice, The Nation and NPR's Fresh Air. WELL-CONNECTED AUTHOR: Stone's most recent book, Everything Is Personal: Notes on Now, was praised and reviewed by the likes of Meg Wolitzner, Daisy Alioto, Mikhail Iossel, and Emily Nussbaum, among others, and her book before that, My Life as an Animal received positive attention from Margo Jefferson, Chris Kraus, and Joan Silber. A TIMELY TOPIC: As the world gradually picks itself up from the wreckage of 2020 and much of 2021, Stone's breezy but poignant observations and analysis come as a much-needed breath of understanding and contextualization for those of us still reeling and processing. A UNIQUE VOICE IN A POPULAR SUBGENRE: Laurie Stone's writing is reminiscent of acclaimed writers Maggie Nelson, Olivia Laing, and Rebecca Solnit, while also maintaining a sharply interesting voice and playing with form that allows even the most distracted of us to appreciate her work.
