From The Kentucky Encyclopedia -
Sarah ("Sallie") Montague Bingham, author, the daughter of George Barry, Sr. , and Mary (Caperton) Bingham , was born January 22, 1937, in Louisville. Her father was editor and publisher of the Louisville Courier-Journal and Louisville Times. She graduated magna cum laude from Radcliffe College in 1958. Bingham's first novel, After Such Knowledge, was published in 1960. It was followed by two collections of short stories, The Touching Hand (1967) and The Way It Is Now (1972); both include penetrating portrayals of children and adolescents.
After the sale of the Bingham communications empire in 1986, Sallie Bingham devoted part of her share of the proceeds to establishing the Kentucky Foundation for Women which supports original work by women as well as other programs for women. It also publishes the American Voice, a literary quarterly that has been a forum for local, unknown writers as well as the nationally and internationally famous.
Thrice married, Bingham has three sons, Barry Ellsworth and Will and Chris Iovenko, and a stepson, Doug Peters.
