My City and Somewhere Else
Poet Agnes Lam has published and read her work in many far-off places, but her home base remains Hong Kong. What does this city mean to someone after more than half a century? What secret messages has she received from a sparrow hopping on the pavement, evening moths appearing in silence during SARS or a beheaded corpse discovered off the Tsing Yi coast? Beyond Hong Kong, what ghosts does the chime of a bell in Mumbai awaken? What do the stars portend and what answer has her camel walker in the Sahara offered? Join us as we celebrate the many voices in Agnes Lam’s poetry.
