The Morgan Lucas Schuldt Memorial Reading features emerging and innovative poets. This event is presented annually as part of the Poetry Center’s Reading and Lecture Series, and is named after poet and publisher Morgan Lucas Schuldt (2/11/1978–1/30/2012).

We are proud to present a reading by Yanyi.

His work has been featured in or at NPR’s All Things Considered, the New York Public Library, Tin House, Granta, A Public Space, and The Los Angeles Review of Books. He is the recipient of fellowships from the Asian American Writers’ Workshop, Poets House, and the Millay Colony for the Arts.
