Celebrating what would have been her 90th birthday, local authors and fans—including Ben Parzybok, Constance Hall, Harold Johnson, Khanh Pham, Laura Moulton, Liz Woody, Michael Heald, Sandy Polishuk and Steve Williams—will read a collection of Paley’s work and screen the documentary Grace Paley: Collected Shorts. This event will be the last of the annual gatherings.
