Join us for a conversation between Ellen Chang-Richardson, the founder of Little Birds Poetry and the co-founder of Riverbed Reading Series, and Jen Sookfong Lee about her acclaimed debut poetry collection,  The Shadow List.

 

The Shadow List is a book filled with desire, where we question the politics of who gets to choose and who doesn't and where the narrator creates hidden lists of what she really wants. With a novelist's way with character, she builds a deep connection with the narrator of the poems, yet each individual poem creates a vivid snapshot of moments many will recognize. The slick of black ice, the killing light of day, the cheap, plastic diamonds–they are all pieces of a life we gather and put in our pockets to remember with.
