Grace Paley: Collected Shorts
A Film by Lilly Rivlin -- Trailer

Visit Grace Paley the film -

"So good is this new work -- so immediate, enthralling, moving and funny -- that it will probably create a bunch of new Paley fans... Every moment in the film is alive and rich -- just like Grace... If the movie is a paean to Paley well -- goddamn -- the woman deserves it."

Remembering Grace Paley:
A panel discussion, with excerpts from Lilly Rivlin's new film, Grace Paley: Collected Shorts

Discussion and Film Excerpts
Grace Paley combined a life as a master short story writer, often compared to Chekhov, with political activism, motherhood, teaching and being a cherished friend. Ranked among the great writers of her generation by peers like Philip Roth, Paley's work has been translated into 92 languages. New York's first official state author and poet laureate of Vermont, her most important work was filtered through her passion for social justice and her love of humanity. Join filmmaker Lilly Rivlin; Claudia Dreifus, prize-winning New York Times journalist and science writer; Vivian Gornick, writer and critic; Marianne Hirsch, Professor of English, Comparative Literature and Gender Studies, Columbia University; and Vera B. Williams, illustrator and writer--friends, colleagues and observers of Grace and her work--for an evening of stories and reflections mixed with excerpts from Rivlin's newly-released documentary Grace Paley: Collected Shorts.

Presented by CJH, co-sponsored by Jewish Women's Archive.
