Grace Verne Silver - feminist, socialist, freethinker

Read her early feminist fiction stories

Read her dramatic Correspondence May - Sept. 1934

Perilously close to starvation, Grace's only solace were the letters she and Queen exchanged. (Unless otherwise noted, all letters are from Grace to Queen.)
