MAGGIE GROWLS is a documentary film portrait by Barbara Attie and Janet Goldwater of the amazing, canny, lusty, charming and unstoppable Maggie Kuhn (1905-1995), who founded the Gray Panthers in 1970 after being forced to retire from a job she loved. Her outrage and determination fueled a political chain reaction that forever changed the lives of older Americans, repealing mandatory retirement laws and proving that "old" is not a dirty word.

The annual display of the UGA Charter will be January 23rd through 27 to mark Founders' Day on Jan. 27, the anniversary of the document's signing. To protect the ink of the parchment manuscript from further fading it is displayed to the public only once a year in the Hargrett Library of the Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries.
The only surviving copy of the Confederate Constitution, a part of the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library, will be displayed. Due to its fragility the document is only exhibited one day per year. An exhibition examining slavery will be on view through Spring Semester.
Five Georgia writers, including humorist Roy Blount Jr. and political commentator Bill Shipp, will be inducted into the Georgia Writers Hall of Fame. Being inducted posthumously are Brainard Cheney, Katharine Du Pre Lumpkin and James Alan McPherson.
The Georgia Writers Hall of Fame events are part of UGA’s Spotlight on the Arts festival celebrating the visual, literary and performing arts at UGA.
