The Poetry Project


Kim Hyesoon with translator Don Mee Choi & Elizabeth Willis and Nancy Bowen

“A witch makes her words of air, then fire, then the planets. Of cardboard, then ink, then a compass,” writes Elizabeth Willis. Such elemental, alchemical words fly, shimmer, and burn in new books by Kim Hyesoon (trans. by Don Mee Choi) and Willis (with images by Nancy Bowen) in the language(s) of memory and forgetting, of wind and birds.

Featuring a guest introduction by E. Tracy Grinnell.

We hope you can join us for a pre-event reception at 7 pm!

This in-person event will also be livestreamed via The Poetry Project's YouTube.
