CELEBRATE GRACE PALEY in the Pacific Northwest
SAVE THIS DATE:
Celebrating Grace Paley’s Life and Work – 12/11/07
Grace Paley's writing and political activism are being commemorated around the world. Here in Portland, our celebration will be on the evening of her 85th birthday, December 11, 2007, at Broadway Books in NE Portland.
In New York and Vermont, the places she lived, and anywhere/everywhere else she's been important to readers, writers and activists struggling to be conscious, to make real art out of what we know as real life – people are mourning her death by celebrating her life. More info coming this fall about the event, which will feature Oregon activists and writers talking about Grace, reading from her poems, stories and essays, with audience participation – and birthday cake!
