I’m deeply honored to help inaugurate Lyric World: Conversations with Contemporary Poets, a new event series sponsored by Town Hall and curated by Shin Yu Pai.
On January 30, 2020, I’ll be reading and speaking about poetry and wonder. Jali Ibrahim Arsalan will also perform West African kora music and the poet Melanie Noel will facilitate an on-stage conversation.
Kai Curry of the Northwest Asian Weekly recently featured the series in an article:
“Town Hall Seattle and KUOW series highlights AAPI poets”
The Seattle Review of Books also featured the event on their website:
