Join us for the festival’s annual poetry in translation reading. This year we’re excited to welcome Kim Hyesoon, one of the most prominent and influential contemporary poets of South Korea, and poet and translator Don Mee Choi, author of Hardly War (Wave Books, 2016) and the recipient of a Lannan Literary Fellowship. They are joined by the Brazilian poet, Adelaide Ivánova, whose first poetry collection, O Martelo (The Hammer) won the Rio de Janeiro Poetry Prize in 2018, and poet and translator Rachel Long, founder of Octavia: Poetry Collective for Womxn of Colour.
