Featuring: Jason Eng Hun Lee | Nashua Gallagher
Join a literary exchange between Peel Street Poetry members Jason Lee and Nashua Gallagher as they take turns reading from their debut collections about home, belonging, their coming-of-age struggles, and their experiences in creating a vibrant poetic community in their adoptive city. From the ancestral voices evident in Lee's multiracial upbringing, to Gallagher's multiple entanglements as a Sri-Lankan mother, wife, and daughter, these are poems of trial, tribulation, and love, that will resonate with listeners anywhere and everywhere.
