Lunch Poems reading by Myung Mi Kim

Myung Mi Kim will read at noon Thursday, March 1, in the Morrison Library.  Born in Seoul, South Korea, Kim travels to the root of language, connecting speech and culture in a rich web of  immaculate phrases.  She strips words to the bone, using fragments and white space to enhance her themes of dislocation and first language loss.  She is the author of four books of poetry, including Under Flag, winner of the 1991 Multicultural Publishers Book Award, and Commons (2002).
