Join A/P/A Reads for a discussion of excerpts from Iep Jāltok: Poems from a Marshallese Daughter by Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner. Marshallese poet and activist Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner’s writing highlights the traumas of colonialism, racism, forced migration, the legacy of American nuclear testing, and the impending threats of climate change facing the people of the Marshall Islands.
The reading excerpts will be provided to those that register for the meeting.
