See note below:
Join us for the 11th Annual Pankake Poetry Reading.
Wang Ping will read new poems from My Name Is Immigrant and relate her experiences while living, writing and teaching poetry as an immigrant activist. Ping is a poet, writer, photographer, performance and multimedia artist. Her publications have been translated into multiple languages and include poetry, short stories, novels, cultural studies, and children’s stories. Her multimedia exhibitions address global themes of industrialization, the environment, inter-dependency, and the people.
The Pankake Poetry Series was named in honor of retired librarian Marcia Pankake, whose love of poetry was demonstrated in the countless readings and poetry events she hosted at the University Libraries.
