Join us for an evening featuring acclaimed poet, translator, and editor Jeffrey Yang presenting his latest poetry collection, Line and Light (Graywolf Press), a volume that deftly traces lines of energy through art, myth, and history, and is hailed by Kyoo Lee as “a ground-breaking work of what we might call estuary poetics.” Yang will be joined by Minneapolis poet Anni Liu as she celebrates her debut book Border Vistas (Persea Books), which intimately narrates the experience of being undocumented in America and about which Ross Gay says “I have scarcely in my life encountered more rapt and rapturous looking.” In these riveting new books, each of these poets investigates issues crucial to our time and lights the way forward into a territory that may be challenging but is eminently worth traveling.
