Carla Panciera’s (poetry ’87) short story collection, Bewildered, was chosen by Pam Houston to receive the Grace Paley Prize for short fiction!  The book was published by the University of Massachusetts in the fall of 2014, and was the first collection to have been written by a Massachusetts writer since UMass began publishing winning titles from this series in 1990.

“What links these stories,” Panciera said, “is what links all of us: The desire to belong, the need to heal, the fear of what happens next.”

Congratulations, Carla!
