Readings from Glacier Lily and Comfort Women
Chungmi Kim will read poems from her second book of poetry, Glacier Lily. Rooted in her bi-cultural experiences, her poems depict many aspects of her life in Korea and America with deep emotion and keen observation.
Also, a scene from Kim's play, Comfort Women, will be read. This play depicts the dramatic collision of past and present when a young Korean NYU student and her grandmother meet two surviving "comfort women" from Korea during the 1994 UN protests.
