Selected Shorts: Grace Paley Centennial with Lauren Groff

Description

PLEASE NOTE THAT EVERYONE 2 YEARS OF AGE AND OLDER MUST WEAR A MASK AT ALL TIMES WHILE IN THE BUILDING.

In honor of the centennial of renowned writer and activist Grace Paley, Selected Shorts pays tribute to her enduring legacy with an evening of classic tales curated from her Collected Stories, a Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award finalist. Fellow National Book Award finalist and bestselling author Lauren Groff (Matrix) leads a cast of actors and admirers in celebrating Paley’s unmatched talent for illuminating the real world through fiction, poetry, and essay.

“A writer like Paley comes along and brightens language up again, takes it aside and gives it a pep talk, sends it back renewed, so it can do its job, which is to wake us up.” -George Saunders
