Grace Paley (1922-2007) was an acclaimed poet, short story writer and committed political activist, especially to women’s rights, peace and social justice.

There are few writers who can be said to match Grace’s intense social conscience and her unerring artistry with words. The William Joiner Center at UMass Boston seek to honor her legacy by choosing annually someone with whom Grace would be proud to be associated.

Author Maxine Hong Kingston, author of The Warrior Woman: Memoirs of a Girlhood among Ghosts and China Men, will read as part of this series.

Tuesday, April 10, 2012  1:00 pm

Chancellor’s Conference Room

Quinn Building, 3rd Floor
