Sunday February 25th at 5:00pm.
Atelier 86 is pleased to have Meena Alexander and Kimiko Hahn join us for an evening of exploration of ancient Indian and Japanese poetry as well and their own contemporary work. The evening will be an exploration of pilgrimage as we discuss new paths and unexpected transitions.
Meena Alexander is a Distinguished Professor of English at Hunter College and at the CUNY Graduate Center in the PhD program in English. She is the author of numerous collections of poetry, literary memoirs, essays, and works of fiction and literary criticism.
Kimiko Hahn is a distinguished professor in the MFA program of Queens College, CUNY. Her work frequently deals with the reinvention of poetic forms and the intersecting of conflicting identities.
Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served. We expect the evening to end at approximately 7:00pm. Admission is by private invitation.
