Wild Geese Sorrow: “The Chinese Wall Inscriptions at Angel Island.”

Reading and Talk
(New translations by Jeffrey Thomas Leong) 
 
Bay Area poet and writer Jeffrey Thomas Leong shares his mesmerizing new book, Wild Geese Sorrow: The Chinese Wall Inscriptions at Angel Island.

The first new translation in almost 40 years, Wild Geese Sorrow takes readers through the deep anger, sorrow, and loneliness felt by the Chinese immigrant detainees at the Angel Island Immigration Station between 1910-1940. Sequenced to narrate the detainee experience, the poems tell of arrival, long detentions, medical exams, political outrage, and for some, deportation. Readers will learn about a critical period of American immigrant history, so essential to our contemporary policy debates.

This coming Thursday 6/28 at 7pm. – Free
