On September 15, please join Judith Arcana, author of Grace Paley's Life Stories, for a conversation with poet and publisher Carl Adamshick, and for readings by both writers from the book. Grace Paley's Life Stories is the only biography of renowned author and activist Grace Paley and explores the roots of her political consciousness and traces her work as an activist as it grew into her work as a storyteller. It was recently reprinted in a glowing 2nd edition by Eberhardt Press in Portland.

Arcana and Adamschick will discuss the importance of this book, and of Grace's life and writing, and will read passages and answer audience questions. Judith Arcana will be available afterward to sign books.
