The East Bay-San Francisco branches of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom are honored to have Maxine Hong Kingston, celebrated author and professor of creative writing at UC Berkeley, as the final speaker in our Peace Talks series. She will reflect on her life and writing, on immigration, war, peace, and activism. She will be in conversation with Kate Raphael, author and producer of KPFA's Women's Magazine.

Kingston's first book, a memoir entitled The Woman Warrior, was published in 1976 and won the National Book Critic's Circle Award, making her a literary celebrity at age thirty-six. Her second book, China Men, earned the National Book Award. Both books are still widely taught in literature and other classes. Kingston has earned additional awards, including the PEN West Award for Fiction for Tripmaster Monkey, the American Academy of Arts and Letters Award in Literature, and the National Humanities Medal, which was conferred by President Clinton.

Her most recent books are The Fifth Book of Peace and I Love a Broad Margin to My Life. Kingston is Senior Lecturer Emerita for Creative Writing at the University of California, Berkeley. In July 2014, she was awarded the National Medal of Arts by President Obama.
