The Living Deal: API Poets on Loss, Labor, and Love
Featuring Wendy Xu, Faisal Mohyuddin, Raena Shirali, Ahmad Almallah, and Cynthia Dewi Oka
First Friday, November 2, 7 p.m.

How does intergenerational trauma in API immigrant communities shape our relationships to labor, including intimate, familial, and emotional labor? How do we define our worth in the context of political erasure, economic necessity, and inherited patterns of gendered violence? How do we accept and remake our difficult inheritances? Five API poets share original work to explore these questions.
