Please join us for our first of four Sunday afternoon PEACE TALK events with local women authors and activists, beginning with AYA DE LEON, poet, author and performer, in conversation with Kate Raphael, author and producer of Women’s Magazine on KPFA, and will include time for questions from the audience. Aya de Leon is a novelist who directs the Poetry for the People program at UC Berkeley. She first came to national attention as a spoken word artist in the underground poetry scene in the Bay Area, and as a hip hop theater artist and a slam poetry champion. She recently published a wild Latina feminist Robin Hood heist novel titled Uptown Thief. Her work explores issues of race, gender, socio-economic class, body and nation. Visit her at

The Peace Talk Author Series will continue with Susan Griffin on May 21 at the Ed Roberts Campus in Berkeley, Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz on July 16 at 518 Valencia in San Francisco, and Maxine Hong Kingston on September 17 at the Ed Roberts Campus in Berkeley. All events are Sunday afternoons from 3-5pm.
