FILM: Grace Paley: Collected Shorts
Grace Paley: Collected Shorts is a luminous tribute to Grace in all her aspects. Grace and her friends and family talk about her family life, her career as a writer and teacher, and her work as an activist. She discusses her childhood as Grace Goodside, youngest child of Russian radicals who had been exiled to Siberia but freed with many others at the birth of a son to Tsar Nicholas. She speaks with warmth about her first husband, camera operator Jess Paley, whom she married in the pressure-cooker atmosphere of World War II and who was the father of her children Nora and Danny. She talks about the lives of the women she knew in Greenwich Village, where she lived, and of her increasing need to tell their stories. She talks about the stories themselves, eventually collected in The Little Disturbances of Man, Enormous Changes at the Last Minute, and Later the Same Day, which were inspired, she says, by the lives of the women she knew in the community. Novelist Alice Walker, critic Vivian Gornick, and other writers talk about the significance of the stories; still others about her influence on them when they were her students.

**THIS EVENT HAS A STRICT REFUND POLICY.  No refunds will be processed by Brown Paper Tickets more than 12 hours after the time of purchase.**
