Paley: "This Woman, Faith, Who Works for Me"

Found yet another treasure trove of audio files.  UPenn's Kelly Writer's House has a searchable database of recorded events, both lectures/classes and readings.  I greatly enjoyed this reading by Grace Paley, which is available in both RealAudio and MP3, in which she shares a short story, several poems, and a short autobiographical essay.  What a mind, and what courage.  I love how she talks about her perennial protag: "This Woman, Faith, Who Works for Me."  Grace, Faith, both fantastic qualities this writer left for us to learn from. 

Here's the reading with audio only. Finally figured out the widget thing (again).

The archive is enormous and searchable. Poets and prose writers. Enjoy.
