Yanyi presents Dream of the Divided Field
In conversation with Sandra Lim

Greenlight is thrilled to welcome Yanyi—award-winning poet, critic, and founder and author of the writing advice publication and community The Reading—to our virtual stage to celebrate the arrival of his second collection, Dream of the Divided Field. These poems suggest that we enter and exit our old selves like homes; we look through the windows and recognize some former aspect of our lives that is both ours and not ours. In piercingly lyrical poems that range and roam across heartbreak, transitions, and selves cast off and longed-for, Yanyi conjures the beloved both within and without us. Through experiences of immigration, violent heartbreak, and bodily transition, Dream of the Divided Field asks us, in so many ways: how can we carry our homes with us? Yanyi returns (virtually) to Brooklyn to join us for a reading and conversation with award-winning poet Sandra Lim (The Curious Thing) for a very special evening.
