Celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander American Heritage Month and Motherʼs Day weekend with three cutting-edge poets whose debut collections grapple with the ties formed by family, community, and history.

April Naoko Heck's A Nuclear Family consists—in the words of Natalie Diaz—of “flickering shrines built from the debris of history and memory, both Japanese and American.”ʼ

With American Canyon , Amarnath Ravva uses prose, documentary footage, and still photos to narrate a sonʼs love for his mother and the rituals he performs as he travels from California to the southernmost tip of India.

The poems in Nicky Sa-eun Schildkraut's Magnetic Refrain are driven by the fire of love, the duality of family, and the violence of history, both Korean and American.

Representing Kundiman and Kaya Press , organizations dedicated to the creation and cultivation of poetry of Asian diasporas, these poets showcases the breadth, diversity, and vitality of Asian American poetry today. A discussion and book signing will follow.
