MothSutra (& matters of migration, love, and identity)
A Visual Poetry Reading and Talk

American Book Award recipient, PEN award-winning poet and short story writer Russell C. Leong of UCLA and Hunter College reads from his newest visual work, MothSutra, a meditation on New York's Chinese food delivery men. He also reads poems on love and diasporic Chinese identity.  Premiered in New York City at the Bowery Poetry Club, this is the MothSutra's first reading in Asia. "Like a river of energy, like an electric current of compassion, MothSutra is a unique book. Mothsutra delivers." (Bob Holman, Columbia University).  The reading is accompanied by Leong's visual images that are part of this book.
