[55] Grace Talusan, author of The Body Papers

“This is why it’s so important for immigrants and feminists to tell our own stories. If we don’t, someone will tell a story about us for their own purposes.” – Grace Talusan

A graduate of Tufts University and the MFA Program in Writing at UC Irvine, she is the recipient of a U.S. Fulbright Fellowship to the Philippines and an Artist Fellowship Award from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
