Event Report – Nakayasu & Kunin

More than sixty-five people came to the Soderberg Auditorium on November 8th to hear poets Sawako Nakayasu and Aaron Kunin read from their works. Nakayasu read as yet uncollected poems, selections from her volume Nothing Fictional but the Accuracy or Arrangement (She (Quale Press), and several translations from Four From Japan (Litmus Press). Aaron Kunin read from a poetry manuscript in progress and concluded with several chapters from the end of his forthcoming novel The Mandarin. Afterward, both poets took questions from the audience.

A digital video recording was made of the event. VHS and DVD duplicates will be available shortly.
