Wild Geese Sorrow

A Discussion with Author and Poet

Jeffrey Leong

Join us for an evening talk with Jeffrey Leong, author of the new book “Wild Geese Sorrow”:

 

The deep anger, sorrow, and loneliness of Chinese immigrant detainees held at the Angel Island Immigration Station between 1910-1940 are revealed in a new book of translations by East Bay poet and writer Jeffrey Thomas Leong. The first new translations in almost 40 years, the poems of Wild Geese Sorrow: The Chinese Wall Inscriptions at Angel Island are sequenced to narrate the incarceration experience: the shock of arrival, lengthy stays from a week up to two years, humiliating medical exams, political outrage, and for some, deportation. Readers will learn of this critical period of anti-Chinese discrimination in American history, so relevant in the current political climate for our immigration policy debates.

Leong is a MFA graduate of the Vermont College of Fine Arts and has published widely in journals such as Bamboo Ridge, Crab Orchard, Hyphen and Spillway.
