Earlier in March, I had the honor and pleasure of reading with my friends, past and present Poets Laureate in Santa Clara County, and wonderful wonderful teen poets. The students read their poems on the theme of immigration — some of them related their own experiences of home, experiences of their families, or imagined experiences.
I read a poem I wrote years ago, “Samarth’s Mom” — an observation of a young Indian mother with her children at our local elementary school. You can read it at this link, in the online journal Convergence.
Here are some photos from that evening.
One thought on “Photos from Silicon Valley Reads Art & Immigration Event”
A friend sent me an email, commenting that this New York Times article seemed relevant to this poetry event! I agree. Thanks JZ.
