As a sneak preview, here are some of the great writers who will be reading, in additon to myself, during my book release party in August:
Bao Phi, award-winning Vietnamese American spoken word artist, writer, cultural critic, creator of Refugeography and Surviving the Translation. Frequent partner in crime in Minnesota.
Robert Karimi, Iranian interdisciplinary artist/ Guatemalan educator, playwwright, travieso, and performance poet. All-around great guy.
Katie Vang, a Hmong American spoken word artist, writer and performer, she's got very distinctive work.
Barbara Jane Reyes, the amazing Filipina American poet, cultural critic and educator, the author of Gravities of Center and Poeta en San Francisco. And she wrote the great foreword to my book.
And, last, but certainly not least, Juliana Pegues will be our MC for this unique evening.
