There's nothing like spending a weekend afternoon with a new book, right? Join Kimberly Nguyen '19 at the launch of her new book "Ghosts in the Stalks" tomorrow in LIC! 📚📖📕 This event is free to Vassar alumni and their guests. (Thanks for thinking of Vassar, Kimmie!)
Join us at the book launch of "Ghosts in the Stalks" by Kimberly Nguyen '19 on Saturday! In her new earth-shattering poetry collection, Kimberly boldly confronts identity, history, politics, and language at the intersections of colonialism, intergenerational trauma, and conflict. The poems are both visually stunning and form-defying, breathing life into language that is delightfully haunting and becomes the “ghosts in the stalks”. The poems’ etymological focus and brave willingness to return to the source of trauma redefines and re-appropriates what it means to return to one’s roots and forces the dead past into a painful present. Books may be pre-ordered at kimberlynguyenwrites.com/store/ghost-in-the-stalks-preorders. Kimberly has extended a special 20% discount just for Vassar alumni! To redeem, use code “VASSAR20” at check-out. Please fill out the following Google Form to add your name(s) to the event list. This event is free for Vassar alumni and their guests.
