From DMZ Colony to Phantom Pain Wings: An Evening with Kim Hyesoon and Don Mee Choi
We hope you will join the School of Arts for From DMZ Colony to Phantom Pain Wings: An Evening with Kim Hyesoon and Don Mee Choi at the Lenfest Center for the Arts. Please find event details below as well as on the Lenfest Center for the Arts website.
This evening is devoted to the incendiary magic that arises when one brilliant poet translates another. For over a decade, poet Don Mee Choi (National Book Award winner, Guggenheim and MacArthur fellow) has been translating the fiercely iconoclastic and radically feminist poetry of Kim Hyesoon (Daesan Literary Award, Griffin Poetry Prize), one of the foremost poets of South Korea. The two will read from their works and speak about their writing and collaboration with Literary Translation at Columbia (LTAC) Director Susan Bernofsky.
This event will take place Wednesday, October 4, 2023 from 7:30–9 PM in The Lantern at Lenfest Center for the Arts.
Reserve your seats here. The event is free and open to the public.
