Timothy Yu reads poems from 100 Chinese Silences (2016), along with new poems that rework John Berryman's The Dream Songs. This reading was originally given with Layli Long Soldier as part of the Morgan Lucas Schuldt Memorial Reading Series.
Sawako Nakayasu mixes her poetry and her translations, crafting a reading that she describes as a translation of the innovative form of her book Mouth: Eats Color (2011). She reads her own poems from The Ants (2014) and Some Girls Walk Into the Country They Are From (2020), a manuscript in progress that would be published two years after this reading. She also reads translations of poems by Japanese modernist Chika Sagawa from Mouth: Eats Color and Korean modernist Yi Sang, later published in Yi Sang: Selected Works (2020).
