Reimagine has been hosting candlelight vigils throughout the pandemic in order to break down taboos and hold space for all that we’ve lost. At this special gathering, poet and writer Victoria Chang will read her work, revisit themes explored in Reimagine’s Asian American Table Talk series, and discuss the power of writing to discover meaning amidst grief and trauma.
Victoria Chang is the author of the forthcoming Dear Memory (Milkweed Editions, 2021), a collection of literary letters and mementos on the art of remembering across generations. Her poetry books include OBIT, Barbie Chang, The Boss, Salvinia Molesta, and Circle. OBIT received the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, the Anisfield-Wolf Book Award, and the PEN Voeckler Award; it was also a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Prize and the Griffin Poetry Prize, and was long-listed for the National Book Award. She is also the author of a children’s picture book, Is Mommy?, illustrated by Marla Frazee and named a New York Times Notable Book, and a middle grade novel, Love, Love. She has received a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Sustainable Arts Foundation Fellowship, the Poetry Society of America’s Alice Fay Di Castagnola Award, a Pushcart Prize, a Lannan Residency Fellowship, and a Katherine Min MacDowell Colony Fellowship. She lives in Los Angeles and is the program chair of Antioch University’s low-residency MFA program.
