Portland Book Festival Presents Paisley Rekdal and Oliver de la Paz on November 4th, 3:30pm-4:30pm PT
From the organizers:
“In The Diaspora Sonnets, Oliver de la Paz uses the traditional sonnet to eloquently invoke the perseverance and myth of the Filipino diaspora in America. Paisley Rekdal’s West: A Translation is an unflinching hybrid collection of poems and essays that draws a powerful, necessary connection between the completion of the transcontinental railroad and the Chinese Exclusion Act (1882–1943). Moderated by Eric Tran (Moth, Sugar, and Smoke).”
