What do we choose to value? What do we choose to record? What do we choose to keep, toss, guard, or put on display? Six Asian American poets, Tamiko Beyer, Duy Doan, Joseph O. Legaspi, Vikas Menon, Sejal Shah, and Yim Tan Wong, whose works range from writing about history, the environment, the politics of labor, to music, place, and the body, will present an ekphrastic reading at the Peabody Essex Museum.
