May 11          Poet:  Ocean Vuong            Music:  Coco Beaux

 
You probably heard Ocean Vuong read and talk about his poems on NPR's All Things Considered.  He's the prodigiously talented young Vietnamese-American poet whose debut book Night Sky with Exit Wounds won a boatload of big prizes last year.  His poems are a stirring mix of personal and national history that speak to the 21st century immigrant experience.  Deep stuff.  Which will be leavened by the musical flirtation of Coco Beaux, the male a cappella group from Connecticut College.
