Don Mee Choi’s Hardly War

April 26 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Please join the UCLA Center for Korean Studies as Don Mee Choi reads from her latest collection of poetry entitled Hardly War (2016). Using visual artifacts from her father’s archive, a photographer during the Korean and Viet Nam wars, Choi combines imagery with poetry, opera, and memoir to examine the devastating impact of the unfinished Korean War.

Don Mee Choi is a poet and translator. Choi’s other poetry collections include The Morning News is Exciting (Action Books, 2010), a chapbook, Petite Manifesto (Vagabond, 2014), and a pamphlet, Freely Frayed. She has received a Whiting Award, a Lannan Literary Fellowship, and the 2012 Lucien Stryk Translation Prize.

Organized by the UCLA Center for Korean Studies.
