YBCA brings together transcultural writers, Ed Bok Lee, D.Scott
Miller, Aleida Rodríguez, and Pireeni Sundaralingam for an intimate evening of live poetry readings that express in the most personal of terms the impact of migration and diasporic experiences on identity. How do global politics present opportunities for reimagining the landscape of the self? How do they shape transgenerational exchange between family and friends? Just as words are technically fabricated but essentially a human part of our lives, so are national borders and cultural differences. These poets, each with a distinct voice, weave language into condensed literary structures that speak to daily life, desires, and the rich potential unique to bi- and poly-cultural identity.
