Susan Griffin, the author of over twenty books, is esteemed both for her innovative thought and creative literary style. Her classic work, “Woman and Nature,” has been published recently by Counterpoint Press in a new edition. “A Chorus of Stones: the Private Life of War,” a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, blends history and memoir, as do two other books she has written as part of a series she calls “a social autobiography.” She has received the Fred Cody Award for Lifetime Literary Achievement by the Northern California Book Reviewers, a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Northern California Book Award for Nonfiction, an honorary doctorate from the Graduate Theological Union, a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Commonwealth Silver Award for Poetry. Her play “Voices” won an Emmy. Currently, she is continuing to write a long poem called “Mississippi,” and a book called “Strong Man” that connects fascism with sexual predation, and is also completing “Out of Silence Sound, Out of Nothing Something: A Guidebook for Writers,” to be published by Counterpoint Press.
