In response to 2017's challenges, fears, questions, anxieties, righteous anger, kindnesses, skepticism, weeping, discussions, collaborations, collective momentum and multitudinous individual gestures, we're pleased to offer a special series of Visiting Poets to the Writing Program.

Cathy Park Hong is the author of Translating Mo'um, (Hanging Loose Press, 2002); Dance Dance Revolution (W.W. Norton, 2007), winner of the Barnard New Women Poets Prize; and Engine Empire (W.W. Norton, 2012). She is the recipient of fellowships from the Fulbright Foundation, the NEA, and the New York Foundation for the Arts. Her writing on politics and her reviews have appeared in the Village Voice, the Guardian, Salon, Christian Science Monitor, and New York Times Magazine. She is an Associate Professor at Sarah Lawrence College.

The reading will be followed by a Q&A.

Programming for In response to is funded and presented in collaboration with the Office of the Dean of Faculty, SAIC and the Poetry Foundation, with whom we share our thanks and excitement.
