[LIVE] In Conversation: Ocean Vuong, Yanyi, and Solmaz Sharif

Presented in collaboration with the David Rubenstein Atrium, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. The MacArthur Grant-winning poet and novelist Ocean Vuong and the poets Yanyi and Solmaz Sharif collectively possess a remarkable talent with words and a shared Asian American heritage. Together, they represent a broad stratum of the generational, ethnic, and gender diversity found within the contemporary Asian diaspora and stand confidently at successful but distinct stages in their careers as authors. For this Atrium salon, presented by the Asian American Writers’ Workshop, the formidable literary triad will give readings from their respective newest books, leading to discussion and criticism about each other’s oeuvre and a general exploration of the themes of displacement, transition, survival, and metamorphosis inherent in all their forthcoming works.
