Breakout Reading Series: Diana Khoi Nguyen
March 10 7:00 pm
About the Event
Join poets and members of the Vietnamese artist women collective She Who Has No Master(s) for an evening of drinking tea and reading tarot. Hoa Nguyen and Diana Khoi Nguyen will offer questions, read poems and Tarot, and discuss Ghost Of, Diana’s debut poetry collection, in an entwined and mediated conversation.
Sip on your favorite warm beverage and engage in essential questions such as: How do we receive information? What faculties are used when we make creative choices? How can we know something about who and what we are?
