Wild Geese Sorrow

Event detail

Join poet and writer Jeffrey Thomas Leong as he takes us through the hidden history of the Chinese wall inscriptions at Angel Island. Drawing from his recent published works, Wild Geese Sorrow: The Chinese Wall Inscriptions at Angel Island and Writ, Jeffrey will give us a glimpse at this dark, yet relevant period of the Chinese American experience.

Jeffrey Thomas Leong is a poet and writer, born in Southern California and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area.  For over two decades, he worked as a public health administrator and attorney for the City of San Francisco.  While earning his MFA in Writing at the Vermont College of Fine Arts, he began a project to translate anew the Chinese wall poems found at the Angel Island Immigration Station.  These translations became the book Wild Geese Sorrow: The Chinese Wall Inscriptions at Angel Island published by Calypso Editions in 2018. His new book Writ, consisting of original poems also about the Angel Island detainee experience, will be published by Eastwind Books of Berkeley in March 2019.
