Transcription

>> THIS ORIGINAL WSRE PRESENTATION IS MADE POSSIBLE BY VIEWERS LIKE YOU. THANK YOU. >> NOVELIST KATHERINE CLARK ON THIS EDITION OF CONVERSATIONS. KATHERINE CLARK IS WRITING CREDENTIALS CO-WRITING TWO ORAL BIOGRAPHIES, "MILKING THE MOON" A SOUTHERNER STORY OF LIFE ON THIS PLANET WITH EUGENE WALTER. AND "MOTHER WIT" A ALABAMA MOTHER STORY. WRITING FICTION IS ANOTHER CHALLENGE. HOWEVER FOR CLARK, IT HAS BEEN A SUCCESSFUL ENDEAVOR. HER DEBUT NOVEL "THE HEADMASTERS DARLINGS" CAUGHT THE ATTENTION OF BEST SELLING AUTHOR PAT CONROY. HE WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN GETTING THE BOOK PUBLISHED AND WROTE THE FORWARD. CLARK AND CONROY RECENTLY COMPLETED HIS ORAL BIOGRAPHY. KATHERINE IS A FORMER COLLEGE PROFESSOR AND HAS AN UNDERGRADUATE DEGREE FROM HARVARD AND A Ph.D. FROM EMORY. WELCOME KATHERINE CLARK TO CONVERSATIONS. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. >> THANKS FOR HAVING ME. >> HOW DID YOU MAKE THE TRANSITION FROM COLLEGE PROFESSOR TO FULL TIME WRITER? >> I MADE IT VERY HAPPILY. I ALWAYS WANTED TO BE A FULL TIME WRITER BUT I KNEW I NEEDED TO SUPPORT MYSELF. SO THAT'S WHY I GOT THE Ph.D. IN THE FIRST PLACE. SO FOR MANY YEARS I TRIED TO DO BOTH AND FOUND THAT IT WAS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE BECAUSE TEACHING IS LIKE BEING A PARENT. IT JUST TAKES ALL YOUR ENERGY, ALL YOUR LOVE, ALL YOUR INTELLIGENCE, EVERYTHING YOU CAN GIVE, IT NEEDS. WHILE I WAS TEACHING; IT IS EASIER TO DO BOOKS LIKE TWO ORAL BIOLOGY PHIS I DID BEFORE MY FIRST -- BIOGRAPHIES I DID BEFORE MY FIRST NOVEL. IT WAS WHEN I WAS NO LONGER TEACHING THAT I WAS FINALLY ABLE TO DEVOTE MYSELF FULL TIME TO WRITING AND GET THAT FIRST NOVEL FINISHED. >> TELL ME ABOUT THE ORAL BIOGRAPHIES YOU DID. AND LET ME GET YOU TO EXPLAIN FIRST WHAT IS AN ORAL BIOGRAPHY? >> AN ORAL BIOGRAPHY IS A BOOK -- THIS IS MY DEFINITION, THAT NO ONE HAS WRITTEN. IT INVOLVES GETTING AN INDIVIDUAL'S SPOKEN WORDS DOWN ON PAPER. SO WHAT I HAVE DONE IN THOSE TWO PROJECT, ACTUALLY THREE NOW, WITH THE BOOK WITH PAT CONROY. I RECORDED THESE THREE INDIVIDUALS. AND GOT THEIR LIFE STORIES DOWN ON TAPE IN THEIR OWN WORDS. I GOT THE RECORDINGS TRANSCRIBED. SO I HAD PAGES AND PAGES AND PAGES OF TRANSCRIPTS AND I TOOK THOSE TRANSCRIPTS AND EDITED THEM INTO THE NARRATIVE OF THE INDIVIDUAL'S LIFE. AND THE WAY I GOT INTO IT, JEFF, IS I WAS TOLD ABOUT A BLACK WOMAN IN MOBILE, ALABAMA WHO WAS WORKING AS A MAID FOR A FAMILY THAT MY COUSIN MARRIED INTO. DURING HIS VISITS TO HIS INLAWS, HE WOULD TALK TO THIS MAID AND SHE TOLD HIM ABOUT HER WORK AS A MIDWIFE. AND TOLD HIM ACTUALLY THAT HER WORK AS A MAID WAS IN SUPPORT OF HER WORK AS A MIDWIFE. SORT OF LIKE MY WORK AS A COLLEGE PROFESSOR WAS IN SUPPORT OF MY CAREER AS A WRITER. SHE WANTED TO WRITE A BOOK ABOUT HER EXPERIENCES AS A MIDWIFE. BUT SHE DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO WRITE. MY COUSIN CONTACTED ME TO SEE IF I COULD HELP HER. AND I MET HER AND I -- SHE WAS JUST A NATURAL BORN STORY TELLER. I KNEW THAT WHAT THE BOOK REALLY NEEDED WAS HER VOICE. NOT JUST HER STORIES AND HER LIFE, BUT HER STORY AND LIFE IN HER OWN VOICE. I RECORDED HER. AND I'LL NEVER FORGET THE DAY THAT THE ACTUAL BOOK CAME OUT. I WAS LIVING IN MOBILE AT THE TIME. I TOOK THE BOOK TO HER HOUSE AND GAVE HER HER COPY. SHE OPENED UP AND RIFLED THROUGH THE PAGES AND THEN SHE HANDED IT BACK AND SAID READ SOME OF IT TO ME, BABY. AND SO I JUST PICKED UP A PASSAGE AND SHE LEANED BACK IN HER CHAIR AND SHE SAID, THAT AIN'T NOTHING BUT MY OWN WORDS. AND I SAID I KNOW. I THOUGHT I TOLD YOU THAT'S HOW I WAS GOING TO DO THE BOOK. SHE SAID THE WHOLE BOOK? IS LIKE THAT? THE WHOLE BOOK IS NOTHING BUT MY WORDS? I SAID THAT'S RIGHT. AND THEN SHE SAID, THANK YOU, BABY. AND THEN SHE LOOKED UP AT THAT TIME CEILING AND SHE SAID THANK YOU, JEEZ. -- THANK YOU, JESUS. >> THAT'S ONE OF THE BEST MOMENTS OF MY LIFE. >> I CAN IMAGINE. WHAT DID YOU LEARN FROM HER? >> WHAT DID I NOT LEARN FROM HER? SHE CALL USE DODD CALL ME, SHE USED TO SAY YOU GOT EDUCATION STACKED UP TO HERE. LIKE SHE WAS DOING BOOKS AND SHE SAID BUT YOU DON'T KNOW NOTHING, DO YOU? AND SHE USED TO SAY YOU'RE SO YOUNG AND STUPID, AREN'T YOU? SHE WAS JUST ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE FULL OF WISDOM, FULL OF LIFE WISDOM. SHE KNEW EVERYTHING ABOUT BIRTH AND DEATH AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN. SHE WAS REMARKABLE SOUL. >> STILL ALIVE? >> NO. SHE'S NOT. WHEN WE RECORDED SHE WAS IN HER '70s AND SHE NEVER KNEW EXACTLY WHEN HER BIRTHDAY WAS. SO SHE WAS SHE WAS QUITE ELDERLY BY THE THE TIME THE BOOK CAME OUT. Q. CURIOUS ABOUT THE SECOND ONE WITH EUGENE WALTER. WHAT WAS LIKE? FOR PEOPLE WHO DON'T KNOW, EXPLAIN WHO HE IS. >> THE BEST WAY TO EXPLAIN EUGENE WALTER IS TO COMPARE TO TRUMAN CAPOTE. THEY WERE ACTUALLY CONTEMPORARIES AS WELL AS FRIENDS. TRUMAN USED TO COME DOWN FROM MAN ROWVILLE TO MOBILE EVERY SATURDAY TO GO TO THE MOVIES. THEY WERE PART OF A CLUB THAT WENT TO THE MOVIES TOGETHER ON SATURDAY. SO THEY KNEW EACH OTHER. AND THEY WERE VERY, VERY LIKE EACH OTHER. IN FACT, GORVEDAL CALLED -- I WROTE HIM A LETTER WHEN I WAS DOING THE BOOK WITH EUGENE, HE WROTE BACK AND SAID EUGENE WALTER, THE OTHER CAPOTE, THE GOOD ONE. LIED ONLY TO ENTERTAIN OTHER PEOPLE. TRUMAN CAPOTE LIED TO HURT OTHER PEOPLE. AND THAT WAS HIS COMPARISON. THAT WAS HIS WAY OF UNDERSTANDING EUGENE. I THINK IT'S A GOOD ONE. BUT EUGENE DID NOT WRITE ANYTHING THAT YOU WILL EVER HAVE HEARD OF. HE WAS JUST -- HE WAS A -- HE WAS IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME. HE WAS IN NEW YORK, E IN THE '40s AFTER THE WAR, IN PARIS IN THE '50s WHERE GEORGE PLIMPTON US FOUNDING THE PARIS REVIEW AND EUGENE BECAME PART OF THAT. WHEN IN ROME IN THE '60s. AND BECAME PART OF THE ITALIAN FILM SCENE. HE WAS IN FELI NEXTS 8 1/2 AND OTHER ITALIAN MOVIES. AND HE HAS THE MOST WONDERFUL STORIES ABOUT HIS EXPERIENCES IN ALL OF THOSE PLACES. HE MET SO MANY FAMOUS PEOPLE. AND HE ENTERTAINED. HE LOVED ENTERTAINING. HOSTING DINNER PARTIES. SO HE'S GOT GREAT STORIES, HE LIVED A GREAT LIFE. HE'S A GREAT -- THE WAY I DEPOSIT INTO TAPING HIS LIFE STORY IS HE WAS IN MOBILE AT THE TIME MOTHER WICK CAME OUT AND HE SAID DARLING, NOW YOU HAVE GOT TO DO YOUR NEXT ONE. I SAID NO, EUGENE, I NEED TO WRITE MY NOVELS. THAT WAS A ONE TIME THING. BECAUSE ONI COULDN'T WRITE. NO, NO, NO, DARLING, THIS WAS SUCH A SUCCESS, YOU HAVE GOT TO DO ANOTHER ONE. FINALLY I FIGURED OUT HE WANTED ME TO DO HIM. WE ASSUMED EUGENE WOULD WRITE HIS MEMOIRS, HE WAS A WRITER. BUT THEN I REALIZED HE SPENT TOO MUCH TIME WITH DR. JIM BEAM EVERY DAY AND IT WAS NO LONGER IN THE CARDS. IT MADE SENSE TO TAPE HIM BECAUSE HE WAS A BETTER RACKETNEUR THAN WRITER. HE WAS SUCH A GREAT ENTERTAINER, ME NEEDED AN AUDIENCE, A LIVE AUDIENCE TO REALLY TURN HIMSELF ON. >> WHAT WERE DAYS LIKE WHEN YOU GO INTERVIEWING? >> WELL, I ACTUALLY, JEFF, THOUGHT IT WAS NOT -- I THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE CATCHES CATCH CAN AND THAT I WOULD HAVE TO BE RUNNING MIND HIM AND TAGGING ALONG TO PARTIES AND I WAS SURPRISED WHEN HE ASKED FOR BUSINESS HOURS. HE WANTED ME TO ARRIVE AT HIS HOUSE AT 9 A.M. STARTING MONDAY MORNING. I NEVER KNOWN EUGENE WALTER TO KEEP BUSINESS HOURS IN HIS LIFE. SO I -- THAT'S WHAT I DID. I SHOWED UP AT NINE EVERY MORNING. AND I WAS ET SUPREME COURTED INTO HIS CAT-FREE ROOM. >> CAT FREE ROOM. >> WHERE ALL HIS RELICS FROM HIS LIFE IN NEW YORK, PARIS, ROME WERE IN THERE. THE CAT HE HAD ABOUT SEVEN FLEE RIDDEN CASE CATS AND THEY WERE NOT ALLOWED TO GIN THIS ROOM. -- GO INTO THIS ROOM. AND IT ALSO HAD ALL HIS BOOKS, ALL IN THIS ALL HIS TREASURES. SO WE USUALLY INTERVIEWED FOR TWO AND A HALF HOURS -- AND HE WAS SOBER, HE WAS STONE COLD SOBER WHEN I GOT THERE. WHICH WAS ANOTHER SURPRISE, I HAD NEVER BEEN AROUND EUGENE SOBER, I DIDN'T KNOW HE COULD BE SOBER. SO I WAS ACTUALLY A LITTLE WORRIED AT FIRST BECAUSE EUGENE WAS THE KIND OF STORY TELLER I THOUGHT WHO NEEDED TO BE A LITTLE BIT LUBRICATEED BEFORE HE COULD REALLY BE HIMSELF BEFORE FULLY HIMSELF. BUT NO, HE WAS GREAT. BUT ABOUT 11:30 HE STARTED REALLY NEEDING ME TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE. SO THAT HE COULD CONFER WITH JIM BEAM. SO I HAD ABOUT TWO AND A HALF TO THREE HOURS EVERY DAY WITH HIM AND THEN I GOT KICKED AUTO. >> CURIOUS, HOW DO YOU PREPARE FOR SOMETHING LIKE THAT, I KNOW WHAT I DO, I GET READY TO DO AN INTERVIEW BUT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT DOING SOMETHING THAT'S LASTING HOURS UPON HOURS AND DAYS UPON DAYS. HOW DO YOU PREPARE YOURSELF FOR THAT? >> WITH THE MIDWIFE, I HAD TO DO A LOT OF RESEARCH ABOUT MIDWIFERY IN ALABAMA. AND WITH EUGENE I DID RESEARCH ON THE -- NEW YORK IN THE 40s, PAIS IN THE 50s AND ROME IN THE 60s, I RESEARCHED THE ITALIAN FILM ERA. I RESEARCHED THE PARIS REVIEW, SO I HAD -- I THINK I HOPE ENOUGH DEPTH, ENOUGH BACKGROUND TO COME UP WITH SOME GOOD QUESTIONS. HERE IS THING. WITH A GREAT RACKENTEUR, YOU DON'T NEED GREAT QUESTIONS. THEY'RE SUCH SKILLED STORY TELLERS ALL IT TAKES IS THE MEREST SUGGESTION OF A TOPIC AND THEY'RE OFF AND RUNNING. IF THEY'RE NOT, YOU DON'T HAVE A GOOD SUBJECT FOR AN ORAL BIOGRAPHY. AND THAT'S MY PHILOSOPHY. THAT'S MY PERSPECTIVE. >> I ASSUME THE CHALLENGE BECOMES THE EDITING PART. >> CHALLENGE IS THE EDITING PART. EXACTLY. WHAT TO PUT IN, WHAT TO LEAVE OUT, HOW TO SHAPE IT. >> TELL ME ABOUT YOUR FIRST NOVEL. HEADMASTERS DARLINGS. IT WAS SORT OF BASED UPON TEACHER OF YOURS, CORRECT? >> YES. >> NORMAN -- >> MARTIN HANKS. HE'S NORMAN LAINIE IN THE NOVEL. ACTUALLY YOU COULD CALL MY FIRST NOVEL A FAILED ORAL BIOGRAPHY. BECAUSE I INITIALLY WANTED TO DO AN ORAL BIOGRAPHY WITH MARTIN HAINS. AFTER ONE WITH EUGENE WALTER SOMEBODY SAID YOU NEED TO DO THIS P WITH MARTIN HAMSE. HE WAS JUST AS MUCH A CHARACTER, LARGER THAN LIFE, OVER THE TOP. AS MUCH A RACKENTEUR, HE HAS JUST AS FASCINATEING A LIFE STORY. BECAUSE HE CAME FROM BLUE COLLAR ALABAMA AND MADE IT TO THE TOP OF MOUNTAIN BROOK SOCIETY AS A FAT MAN WEIGHING HUNDREDS OF POUNDS. SO MY FIRST THOUGHT WAS TO DO AN ORAL BIOGRAPHY WITH HIM. UNFORTUNATELY HE PASSED AWAY BEFORE WE COULD REALLY DISCUSS THAT. AND I THINK WHAT HAPPENED IS THE IDEA OF DOING A BOOK ABOUT HIM NEVER LEFT MY MIND. THEN I HAD TO REMIND MYSELF THAT I WAS ALWAYS PLANNING TO WRITE FICTION ANYWAY. THIS WAS LIFE TELLING ME IT'S TIME TO GET THAT FIRST NOVEL GOING. AND THIS IS YOUR CHARACTER. HE WAS A GREAT CHARACTER. FOR A FIRST TIME NOVELIST BECAUSE HE WAS ALL THERE, HE WAS SO COMPLEX AND SOFASNATING THAT I DIDN'T -- SOFASNATING I DIDN'T FEEL , SO, FASCINATING. I DIDN'T FEEL THE NEED TO MAKE ANYTHING UP. THERE WAS SO MUCH TO WORK WITH. >> WHAT WAS YOUR TRANSITION LIKE AS A WRITER GOING INTO THAT FICTION FOR THE FIRST TIME IS THIS WAS IT DIFFICULT? >> IT IS, THE FIRST ONE BY AS FAR WAS THE HARDEST. WITH ORAL BIOGRAPHY, JEFF, YOU'RE GIVEN ALL YOUR MATERIAL. YOU'RE GIVEN ALL YOUR CHARACTERS. YOU'RE GIVEN YOUR VOICE. YOU'RE GIVEN YOUR THEMES. YOU ARE GIVEN EVERYTHING EXCEPT THE STRUCTURE. AND THAT'S WHAT I HAD TO STEP IN AND DO AS AN EDITOR. WITH FICTION YOU'RE GIVEN NOTHING, YOU HAVE TO PULL IT ALL OUT OF YOUR HEAD. THAT'S WHY I SAY IT WAS GREAT TO HAVE THIS MARTIN HAMES CHARACTER THAT I COULD -- THAT WAS A GIVEN IN A WAY. BUT EVERYTHING ELSE IS SOMETHING I HAD TO COME UP WITH. >> WHAT IS THAT PROCESS LIKE? IS THAT SOMETHING YOU SIT DOWN AT YOUR COMPUTER AND JUST SAY, OKAY FROM NINE IN THE MORNING TO 4 IN THE AFTERNOON I'M GOING TO DO IT OR IS IT SOMETHING YOU RUN AROUND THROUGHOUT THE DAY AND YOU'RE THINKING OF IDEAS AND CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT AND WHAT NOT? >> IT'S BOTH. I HAD START TREAT IT LIKE A FULL TIME JOB. AND USING EVERY AVAILABLE HOUR I HAD WHILE MY CHILDREN WERE IN SCHOOL, TO WRITE. BUT YOU FIND IF YOU DO ENOUGH OF THAT, THEN YOU'RE STILL WRITING AS YOU'RE DRIVING TO SCHOOL TO PICK THEM UP OR YOU'RE FIXING DINNER OR EXERCISING, IT'S STILL PLAYING AROUND IN THE BACK OF YOUR MIND. >> IS WRITING EASY FOR YOU? >> WELL, I DON'T KNOW HOW TO ANSWER THAT QUESTION. I WILL SAY THIS. I LOVE IT. >> THAT WAS MY SECOND QUESTION. >> I NEVER FEEL MORE ALIVE THAN WHEN I AM WRITING. WHEN I AM WRITING I FEEL LIKE I'M FULFILLING MYSELF TO THE FULLEST. THIS IS WHAT I'M GOOD AT. THIS IS WHAT I CAN DO. THERE IS A GREAT FEELING WHEN YOU'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT. SO IN A SENSE IT'S EASY BECAUSE WHAT'S NOT EASY FOR ME IS NOT WRITING. EVERYTHING ELSE IS MY SECOND BEST. WRITING IS WHAT I'M REALLY GOOD AT OR THAT'S HOW I FEEL. IT'S NOT AN EASY THING TO DO. >> ENJOYABLE THING. >> IT'S ENJOYABLE FOR ME. >> I HEARD WRITERS SAY I HATE THE PROCESS, I HATE WRITING, BUT I LOVE THE FACT THAT I HAVE WRITTEN. >> RIGHT. >> THAT MAKE SENSE? >> RIGHT. >> I'M ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE. ANYWAY, SO ACTUALLY, "HEADMASTERS DARLING" IS FIRST IN A SERIES. TELL ME ABOUT THE OTHER THREE COMING. >> IT DIDN'T START AS A SERIES. I WROTE THIS NOVEL AS SORT OF A TRIBUTE TO MARTIN HAMES, MY ENGLISH TEACHER IN HIGH SCHOOL. WHAT I WANTED TO DO WAS TO SHOW -- TO ME, THIS TEACHER HAD A HUGE IMPACT NOT JUST ON HIS STUDENTS, SCHOOL, BUT HE HAD IMPACT ON AN ENTIRE COMMUNITY. I THINK HE HELPED CHANGE A COMMUNITY. AND I WANTED TO SHOW HOW HE DID THAT. IT'S OFTEN SAID ABOUT THE SOUTH THAT IT DOESN'T CHANGE, THAT IT'S RESISTANT TO PROGRESS. AND I DON'T THINK THAT'S ENTIRELY TRUE. I WANTED TO TAKE ONE COMMUNITY THAT I KNEW VERY WELL THAT I HAD GROWN UP IN. AND SHOW HOW OVER TIME IT HAD CHANGED. BUT I -- SO I REALIZED WHEN I'M MT. IN THE MIDDLE OF WRITING THE FIRST NOVEL I CAN'T DO THIS IN ONE NOVEL. IF YOU WANT TO SHOW HOW SOMETHING IS CHANGED OVER TIME, YOU'VE GOT TO GO OVER TIME. YOU HAVE GOT TO START IN THE '80s OR START BACK WHEN, WHICH IS WHAT I DO. AND THEN YOU HAVE GOT TO CHART THE EVOLUTION. YOU HAVE TO CHART SOME PROGRESS. SO THE IDEA OF A SERIES CAME WHEN I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FIRST NOVEL. >> THE SECOND BOOK WILL BE -- >> IT'S CALLED "ALL THE GOVERNOR'S MEN". AND THEY'RE CALLED THE MOUNTAIN BROOK NOVELS, SERIES. >> FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT FAMILIAR, IT'S -- WHAT KIND OF EXCLUSIVE AREA OF BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA. >> CORRECT. THE SECOND ONE IS ACTUALLY A PRE-QUELL, IT'S SET AGAINST THE BACKDROP OF GEORGE WALLACE EYE LAST RUN FOR GOVERNOR OF ALABAMA IN 1982. I FELT WITH THE SECOND ONE I NEEDED TO SHOW MORE THE ALABAMA CONTEXT, THE WHOLE STATE. THE BACKDROP OF THE CAMPAIGN GAVE ME A WAY TO DO THAT. >> THE HIDER ONE? >> THE THIRD ONE MOVES US FORWARD IN TIME. CALLED THE HARVARD BRIDE. AND THE FOURTH ONE IS CALLED THE "X SUICIDE" WHICH IS A PLAY ON A WALKUP HERESY COME SEPTEMBER, THEY GREW UP IN BIRMINGHAM, THAT NOVEL SET IN THE HOUSE HE GREW UP IN ACROSS FROM THE BIRMINGHAM COUNTRY CLUB. THAT ONE IS SET IN '97. SO I'M SLOWLY BUT SURELY MAKING MY WAY UP TO THE PRESENT DAY AND MY GOAL IS TO KEEP WRITING NOVELS UNTIL I GET TO THE PRESENT DAY. >> AS YOU EXPAND, HOW DO YOU GO ABOUT DOING YOUR RESEARCH FOR A THAT? I MEAN, I'M ASSUMING THOUGH IT'S FICTION AND YOU'RE MAKING IT UP, YOU STILL HAVE TO HAVE SOL LEVEL OF REALITY WITH IT. >> RIGHT. >> HOW DO YOU GO ABOUT DOING THAT? >> THE ONE THAT NEEDED THE MOST RESEARCH SO FAR IS THE SECOND ONE, "ALL THE GOVERNOR'S MEN" I HAD TO DO LOT OF READING RESEARCH ABOUT WALLACE AND HOW CAMPAIGNS WORK IN GENERAL. THE ORS, SO FAR I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO PULL ON MY OWN EXPERIENCE AND OBSERVATION. BUT I THINK AS I GO FORWARD, I'M GOING TO NEED TO DO. IN THE SENSE OF BEING ABLE TO TAKE RESEARCH MATERIAL AND BRING IT TO LIFE. I DO BETTER IF I AM PULLING FROM MY OWN EXPERIENCE, MY OWN OBSERVATION. >> INTERESTING. TELL ME ABOUT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH PAT CONROY, HE WROTE "THE -- THE FORWARD FOR YOUR FIRST NOVEL AND YOU GUYS SUBSEQUENTLY COMPLETED -- >> ORAL PIEOGRAPHY. >> YES. >> TELL ME ABOUT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM. >> IT'S BEEN ONE OF THE MOST SPECIAL PRIVILEGES OF MY WHOLE LIFE. WE MET IN 2009 WHEN HIS LAST NOVEL CAME OUT. "SOUTH ABROAD," I WAS ASSIGNED BY THE MOBILE PRESS REGISTER TO INTERVIEW HIM. UPON THAT PUBLICATION. SO WE DID A PHONE INTERVIEW. AND YOU CAN IMAGINE HOW NERVOUS I WAS BEFORE THAT CONVERSATION. I WAS TRYING TO COME UP WITH A WAY TO TELL HIM HOW MUCH I LOVE HIS BOOKS AND HOW MUCH THEY HAVE MEANT TO ME WITHOUT SOUNDING LIKE A GROUPIE. BUT P WHEN I GOT ON THE PHONE WITH HIM, THE FIRST THING HE SAID WAS THAT HE HAD BEEN TRYING TO TRACK ME DOWN FOR YEARS. BEEN TRYING TO FIND ME FOREVER. THEN I THOUGHT HE MUST HAVE THE WRONG PERSON, HE THINKS I'M SOMEONE ELSE. AND I SAID ARE YOU SURE THAT IT'S ME? HE SAID NO, I LOVE YOUR BOOK MILKING THE MOON. >> WOW. >> MY LIFE CHANGED RIGHT THEN AND THERE. IT CHANGED. AND HE KNEW ABOUT THE BOOK, HE HAD READ THE BOOK, AND HE WAS TELLING ME HE LOVED THE BOOK. IT CHANGED MY LIFE. HE KNEW EUGENE WALTER. PAT LIVED IN ROME WHEN HE WROTE THE PRINCE OF TIDES. AND HE HEARD ABOUT EUGENE WALTER EVERYWHERE HE WENT. THEY CROSSED PATHS. EUGENE HAD JUST GONE BACK TO MOBILE WHEN PAT WENT OVER TO ROME. TO WRITE "PRINCE OF TIDES" AND HE HEARD ABOUT EUGENE, EVERYWHERE YOU WENT, YOU JUST MISSED THE MOST WONDERFUL SOUTHERNER. SO WHEN PAT MOVED BACK TO THE U.S., A FEW YEARS LATER ONE OF THE FIST THINGS ON HIS TO DO LIST WAS TO LOOK UP EUGENE WALTER. SO HE FLEW FROM ATLANTA TO MOBILE JUST TO MEET EUGENE. SO HE DID THAT SEVERAL TIMES. AND SO HE KNEW EUGENE AND WHAT HE SAID TO ME ON THE PHONE WAS I THOUGHT YOU JEAN WAS GOING TO BE LOST TO THE WORLD. THEN YOUR BOOK CAME OUT. AND I MEAN, I WAS JUST FLABBERGASTED. AND MEANWHILE THAT LITTLE SPEECH THAT I HAD BEEN TRYING TO FORMULATE IN MY HEAD TO TELL HIM HOW MUCH, THAT I COULDN'T EVEN GET IT OUT. SO THAT CONVERSATION STARTED MANY MORE CONVERSATIONS. OUR FRIENDSHIP WAS ONE THAT TOOK PLACE OVER THE TELEPHONE. WE HAD A TELEPHONE FRIENDSHIP. AND AT ONE POINT HE JOKED TO ME THAT IF I HAD BEEN RECORDING OUR PHONE CONVERSATIONS I WOULD HAVE A BOOK BY NOW. I THOUGHT WELL. I WILL WASTE NO FURTHER TIME, PAT. ACTUALLY WHAT HAPPENED, HE SAID THAT AND THEN HE HAD A HEALTH SCARE. THIS IS ABOUT THREE YEARS AGO. HE NEARLY DIED IN HIS HEALTH SCARE, HE WAS IN THE HOSPITAL FOR TWO WEEKS. CAME BACK FROM THAT, CALLED ME, AND SAID YOU KNOW, IT MADE ME REALIZE WHAT'S ON MY TO DO LIST BEFORE I DIE. ONE THING IS TO COOPERATE WITH A BIOGRAPHER. I SAID WELL, I'M NOT THE ONE TO DO A SCHOLARLY BIOGRAPHY, I'M JUST NOT ORIENTED THAT WAY. I SAID BUT I WILL LOVE TO DO WITH YOU WHAT I DID WITH EUGENE WALTER. HE SAID, LET'S DO IT. AND WE DID IT. WE DID IT MOSTLY OVER THE TELEPHONE WHICH IS ACTUALLY HOW HE PREFERS, HE'S DEAF. AND HE HAS GREAT HEARING AIDS BUT WHEN THAT PHONE IS UP RIGHT NEAR THE HEARING AID HE CAN ACTUALLY HEAR BETTER THAN IF HE'S IN THE ROOM WITH YOU. IF THE SO WE DID MOST OF THE RECORDING OVER THE PHONE. AND IT WORKED, HE DOES NOT NEED A LIVE AUDIENCE LIKE EUGENE WALTER DID. THAT'S WHAT I WAS CONCERNED ABOUT AT FIRST. HE DOESN'T NEED THE LIVE AUDIENCE. HE'S A GREAT CONVERSATIONALIST AND HE LOVES TALKING ON THE PHONE. A FRIEND OF HIS ONCE EXPLAINED THAT PAT IS A RECLUSE WHEN HE'S A WRITER, HE WRITES ALL DAY. AND THEN FOR HIS SOCIAL LIFE HE PICKS UP THE PHONE. AND HE STARTS CALLING FRIENDS AND HE JUST TALKS. THAT'S HIS SOCIAL LIFE WHEN H'S WRITING. >> IN ABOUT ONE MINUTE, WHAT'S THE MOST I GUESS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU TOOK AWAY OR YOU FROM YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH PAT? >> I DON'T KNOW IF I CAN DO THAT IN ONE MINUTE. PAT WAS A WONDERFUL HUMAN BEING. AS WELL AS A GREAT WRITER. HE WAS ALWAYS TELLING ME THAT WRITERS USUALLY ARE NO FUN AS FRIENDS BECAUSE THEY'RE JEALOUS, THEY'RE COMPETITIVE, THEY DON'T HELP EACH OTHER. THAT'S NO SENSE OF COMRADERY BETWEEN WRITERS. AND HE SHOWED ME THAT IT'S IMPORTANT TO BE A HUMAN BEING FIRST. >> THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH, WHAT AN ABSOLUTE PLEASURE VISITING WITH YOU. I WISH YOU THE VERY BEST. >> THANK YOU. >> KATHERINE CLARK.

Early life and career

Katherine Marlea Clark[3] was born July 17, 1963 in New Haven, Connecticut.[4] She attended St. Lawrence University, Cornell Law School, and the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.[5] She studied in Nagoya, Japan in 1983.[3]

In her early career she worked as an attorney in Chicago, then moved to Colorado where she worked as a clerk for a federal judge Alfred Albert Arraj of the United States District Court for the District of Colorado during 1990 - 1991 and later as a staff attorney for the Colorado District Attorneys' Council.[6] She moved to Massachusetts in 1995 and became general counsel for the state Office of Child Care Services.[7]

Local politics

In 2001 Clark moved to Melrose, where she was elected to the Melrose School Committee, taking her seat in January 2002.[6] Clark first ran for the Massachusetts Senate in 2004, but lost 57 to 43 percent to Republican incumbent Richard Tisei.[8][9] In January 2005 she was unanimously elected chairwoman of the Melrose School Committee.[10] In 2006, she decided to run for the 32nd Middlesex seat in the Massachusetts House of Representatives when incumbent Mike Festa began a run for Middlesex district attorney, but withdrew after he dropped out of the race.[11]

Clark was appointed co-chair of Victory 2006, the state Democratic Party's campaign and fundraising effort for the 2006 gubernatorial election.[12] She spent some time as Chief of Policy and Government Relations in the state Attorney General's office.[13]

Massachusetts legislature

At an event with then U.S. Representative Ed Markey in 2008.

Massachusetts House of Representatives

Festa resigned his state House seat in October 2007, to become Secretary of Elder Affairs in the Deval Patrick Administration, and Clark entered the special election to succeed him. In the campaign she emphasized her experience as an attorney and made "developing stability in state aid" her top policy issue. She won the Democratic primary in January with 65% of the vote, defeating two other Melrose Democrats.[13][14] She defeated Republican real estate businessman Mark B. Hutchison 63 to 37 percent.[15][16] In November 2008, she won re-election to a full term unopposed.[17]

Sworn in March 13, 2008,[18] she represented Melrose and Wakefield. She voted in favor of a sales tax increase saying "Voting for a sales tax (increase) certainly was not an easy vote, by any means, especially in this economic climate. And one of the reasons, primary reasons, I did it was for the local aid and for the MBTA. So, to have the ink barely dry on the budget, and have the MBTA coming back and asking for a fare increase to remove draconian service cuts, is something that does make me and my constituents angry." [19]

Clark's committee assignments were as follows.

  • Education
  • Judiciary
  • Municipalities and Regional Government[20]

Massachusetts Senate

When Tisei resigned his state Senate seat to run for Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts, she ran for his senate seat. In the Democratic primary, she defeated Stoneham attorney Michael S. Day 64%-36%.[21][22] She defeated Republican Craig Spadafora in the November 2010 general election 52%-48%.[23]

Clark was sworn in January 5, 2011.[24] She is a pro-choice legislator and has been endorsed in her state legislator campaigns by both NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts and the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund.[25][26][27]

In 2011 she was co-chair of the Joint Committee on Public Service, where she was lead author of the Senate version of a bill to reform municipal pensions.[28][29] For her work in 2011, she received legislator of the year awards from the Massachusetts Municipal Association and the Massachusetts Police Association.[30][31] In 2012 she authored a law that takes steps to ensure that all Massachusetts students are reading at grade level by third grade.[32] Also in 2012, her bill extending restraining orders in domestic violence cases to also cover victims' pets, which are often used as pawns in abusive relationships, was signed as part of a larger law on animal shelters.[33][34] In 2013 she co-sponsored a bill expanding the state's wiretapping authority, which was strictly limited under existing law, in order to help police better investigate violent street crime.[35] At the same time, she co-sponsored a bill to secure electronic privacy protections, requiring police to have probable cause before investigating the electronic records of individuals.[36] She filed another bill tightening sex offender laws, imposing stricter penalties and making offender data more accessible to agencies and the public.[37][38] The Women's Bar Association of Massachusetts honored Clark as their 2013 Legislator of the Year for her service on women's issues.[39]

Clark's committee assignments in the state Senate were as follows.

  • Judiciary (Chair)
  • Mental Health and Substance Abuse (Vice Chair)
  • Post Audit and Oversight (Vice Chair)
  • Public Health
  • Public Safety and Homeland Security
  • Steering and Policy (Chair)[40]

Congressional career

Clark was the Democratic nominee in the 2013 special election for the U.S. House of Representatives in Massachusetts's 5th congressional district. The district's longtime incumbent, Ed Markey, had just been elected to the United States Senate six months into his 19th term. In a heavily-contested Democratic primary—the real contest in this heavily Democratic district—she was endorsed by Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley[42] and also received the endorsement of EMILY's List.[43] On October 15, 2013 she won the Democratic primary with a plurality of 32% of the vote. Her closest competitor was Middlesex County Sheriff Peter Koutoujian, who won 22% of the vote.[44][45] On December 10, 2013, as expected, she easily won the special election.[46]

Clark was sworn into office December 12, 2013 and sits on the House Appropriations Committee.[41] In a 2014 interview with The Boston Globe, she compared the television series House of Cards to life in Washington, saying "It's exactly like here; minus the murders."[47]

Clark was unopposed in her bid for a full term in 2014.

In early March 2015, Clark decided not to attend the speech by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu before a joint session of Congress. Clark said she remains committed to maintaining and strengthening what she called the special relationship between the U.S. and Israel, but noted the invitation was offered without first consulting the Obama administration, as is customary.[48]

Clark has introduced legislation in response to Internet harassment, most notably resulting from the Gamergate controversy, and she has advocated for more stringent enforcement of existing laws.[49] After introducing legislation that would criminalize "swatting" (falsely reporting an ongoing critical incident to dispatch an emergency response), she was herself targeted by a false report of an active shooter at her home.[50][51]

In January 2017, Clark announced a ceremonial boycott of the inauguration of Donald Trump. She was one of a small group of House and Senate members who chose to boycott Trump's swearing-in ceremony. Her reasons, according to the Boston Globe, for not attending were due to her desire not to "normalize" Trump's promotion of "bigoted, misogynist, anti-Semitic, and racist claims."[52]

In May 2017, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos addressed the House Appropriations subcommittee. Clark asked DeVos: If a state private school voucher program wanted to discriminate against LGBTQ students using federal taxpayer dollars, would the Education Department step in to stand up for students and taxpayers?[53]

She is a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus[54] and the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus.[55]

House Democratic Caucus Vice Chair

On November 28, 2018, it was announced that Clark had defeated California Congressman Pete Aguilar to succeed Linda Sanchez as Vice Chair of the House Democratic Caucus.[1][2]

Personal life

Clark is married to Rodney S. Dowell. He is an attorney, Founder of Law Management Innovation, LLC[56] and former executive director of the Massachusetts Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers program.[57] They live in Melrose and have three sons, Addison, Jared, and Nathaniel Dowell.[5]
