Tina Chang presents Hybrida
Aimee Nezhukumatathil presents World of Wonders
Beloved poets Tina Chang and Aimee Nezhukumatathil come together to discuss their latest books, both of which meditate on the themes of race, motherhood, and home through different lenses. Ambitious and revelatory, Chang’s Hybrida is a stirring and confident examination of mixed-race identity, violence, and history skillfully rendered through the lens of motherhood. In an agile blend of zuihitsu, ghazal, mosaic poems, and lyric essays, Hybrida establishes Chang as one of the most vital voices of her generation. Nezhukumatathil’s debut work of nonfiction World of Wonders is a collection of essays about the natural world, and the way its inhabitants can teach, support, and inspire us. Warm, lyrical, and gorgeously illustrated by Fumi Nakamura, World of Wonders is a book of sustenance and joy. Join Chang and Nezhukumatathil for this illuminating virtual discussion of their work!
