Monday, April 25, 2022
We're thrilled to have our popular National Poetry Month reading series return—in person!—this year. Join us down the street at the Wine Cafe on Monday evenings throughout April for readings with award-winning Minnesota poets. This week will feature Sun Yung Shin and Claire Wahmanholm.
Sun Yung Shin is a Minnesota Book Award-winning poet, editor, and children’s book writer. She is the author of four books of poetry, including the forthcoming The Wet Hex (June 2022). She is the editor or co-editor of three prose anthologies including: What We Hunger For: Refugee & Immigrant Stories about Food & Family and A Good Time for the Truth: Race in Minnesota. Her work has been supported by a MacDowell Fellowship, a Bush Fellowship, a McKnight Fellowship, and several grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board.
Claire Wahmanholm is the author of Night Vision, Wilder, Redmouth, and the forthcoming Meltwater. Her work has most recently appeared in, or is forthcoming from, Ninth Letter, Blackbird, Washington Square Review, Good River Review, Descant, Copper Nickel, and Beloit Poetry Journal, and has been featured by the Academy of American Poets. She was a 2020-2021 McKnight Writing Fellow, and lives in the Twin Cities. Find her online at clairewahmanholm.com.
This program is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant provided by the Traverse des Sioux Library Cooperative, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
