There's a Grace tribute scheduled for the AWP (Associated Writing Programs) convention: Tribute to Grace Paley by Glad Day Books.

She was also, in her last decade, an editor and publisher. Grace's fellow publisher/writer/activist husband Bob Nichols and other Glad Day authors pay homage to the writing and life of the woman who was their supporter, publisher and friend. Included is documentary footage of Grace at home and reading her own stories and from Fidelity, her posthumous collection of poems.
