Award-winning writers Michael Warr and Chun Yu will recite their poems in Chinese and English and share related images. They will share works written as part of their Two Languages / One Community Workshop Series in which they engage African American and Chinese American participants in a rare cultural exchange based on dialogue, storytelling, and writing.
Workshop attendees write poems and short stories based on memories sparked by photographs of their parents, their younger selves, and other family members. The writing is translated in Chinese and English and published online and as a book titled Catching Memory.
Following the featured reading, the audience will have an opportunity to share their poems and stories based on their family experience. Each open mic reader will have three minutes.
