My dinner with Emily , former student and author
A Cruelty Special to our Species
Emily Yoon, my former student and author of A Cruelty Special to our Species paid me a visit Friday evening after doing a reading and workshop at SMUS, her former school. Her poetry addresses a topic rarely discussed- The occupation of Korea and abuse of women. Her poetry is lucid and strong, describing atrocities which are never openly touched upon. I’m so proud of her. Her book has received rave reviews and is well worth reading.I’m so proud of you sweet pea!
