Spirit Lake Poetry Series: Bao Phi

Spirit Lake Poetry Series is thrilled to welcome poet Bao Phi to Duluth for a free, public reading on Saturday, November 4, at 7:30. The reading will take place at Prøve Gallery, located at 21 North Lake Avenue in downtown Duluth. 

As we enter our twentieth year, Spirit Lake stays true to its mission of celebrating new works by local, regional, and national poets. Coffee House Press describes Phi’s new collection, Thousand Star Hotel, as a confrontation of “the silence around racism, police brutality, and the invisibility of the Asian American urban poor.” The blunt yet agile style of Phi’s lines forms what he has called a guidebook for Asian-American youth, both autobiographical and activist. 

Join us to celebrate this Minnesotan author and his wonderful Thousand Star Hotel at Prøve this November.
