On November 30th, KSW Presents: “A Climb That Begins with Falling” featuring Duy Doan and Angie Sijun Lou. This reading is a celebration of Duy Doan’s newly published WE PLAY A GAME, winner of the 2017 Yale Series of Younger Poets prize. Join us as our readers share works exploring what it means to climb and to fall: to fall back to our lines that came before, to our mothers, to our histories that bear repeating. And to climb into to all those sites and events that inform who we are today, with an eye towards structures of migration, memory, gender, and language. The title of this event comes from Duy Doan’s poem “Another Way of Explaining It.” CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: We are opening up submissions for writers to be a part of this reading. Please see below for more information on how to apply. PLUS: Check out KSW's latest Office Gallery exhibition, "These Must Be the Places", a photo exhibition by Anth Bongco!
