POETRY IN TRANSLATION
Acclaimed translators Erica Weitzman, Jeffrey Yang, and Jennifer Hayashida cross continents, centuries, languages, and styles as they read their translations of contemporary and classical poetry from Kosovo (Valentina Saraçini, Dreaming Escape), China (Su Shi, East Slope), and Sweden (Fredrik Nyberg, A Different Practice). This evening is presented by Brooklyn-based Ugly Duckling Presse, a non-profit art publishing collective.
