Poets & Writers invited Chinese Culture Center to present Michael Warr and Chun Yu to showcase the creativity and diversity of the organizations and writers supported by the Readings & Workshops mini-grant program.
The Connecting Cultures event is a celebration and is always a terrific showcase of voices. Presenting the event virtually means that this year will be Poets & Writers' first bi-coastal Connecting Cultures Reading!
Two Languages/One Community connects the Chinese American and African American communities with poetry and storytelling, in remembrance of our pasts and in search for our future together.
