This week I’ll be speaking/reading with two astounding writers, Barbara Jane Reyes and Craig Santos Perez! If you’re around Saturday afternoon or Monday evening, please come out and join us. I’m a big believer and fan of Craig, having published his chapbook preterrain (which is all sold out!) last year, and am excited to finally meet and speak with him in person. I also own and love Barbara’s book Poeta in San Francisco. Both she and Craig are based on the West Coast, so this is a big treat to have them visiting out East.
SATURDAY November 13, 2PM
POETS HOUSE, 10 River Terrace
(Re)writing Culture with Sueyeun Juliette Lee, Craig Santos Perez & Barbara Jane Reyes
In this panel, three young poet-scholars investigate the intersection of research and poetic practice, including Perez’s interest in ethnography and poetry, Reyes’s practice of rewriting/retelling Filipino mythology and Lee’s exploration of geography, psychology and the textuality of nations (focusing specifically on the United States and North and South Korea).
