Lorna Dee Cervantes and Shirley Geok-lin LimStreaming Video - 2006
Lorna Dee Cervantes began writing poetry at the age of eight and founded her own press to publish the works of Mexican-Americans. Dr. Shirley Geok-lin Lim, an English professor and Fulbright Distinguished Lecturer, uses her Chinese/Malaysian roots to bring a unique Asian-American perspective to her writing. In this program, Bill Moyers and the two poets discuss topics that revolve around the theme of otherness. Readings by Ms. Cervantes feature "Summer Ends Too Soon," "California Plum," and "Coffee"; readings by Dr. Lim showcase "My Father's Sadness," "Lament," and others. Filmed at the Biennial Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival.
