Poetry, Memory, and Salvaging: Kundiman at Mass Poetry (Salem)

  • Peabody Essex Museum 161 Essex St Salem, MA (map)

What do we choose to value? What do we choose to record? What do we choose to keep, toss, guard, or put on display? Six Asian American poets, Tamiko Beyer, Duy Doan, Joseph O. Legaspi, Vikas Menon, Sejal Shah, and Yim Tan Wong, whose works range from writing about history, the environment, the politics of labor, to music, place, and the body, will present an ekphrastic reading at the Peabody Essex Museum.

If you're headed to the festival, don't miss fellow Ocean Vuong's reading on the 29th at 7:30.
