With cookies in one hand and coffee in the other, cozy up to the fire for six weeks of free readings. In its 24th season, the Fireside Reading Series is one of the oldest and most popular events of The Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library, highlighting the work of some of Minnesota’s finest writers who have published a new work in the previous year.
In his second book of poems from Coffee House Press, Bao Phi confronts the silence around racism, police brutality and the invisibility of the Asian American urban poor. At once a poetic resistance to being erased and a loving history meant for his daughter, this collection is a reminder of the power and value of truth. Phi, a two-time Minnesota Grand Slam poetry champion and National Poetry Slam finalist, is also the author of Sông I Sing and a children’s picture book, A Different Pond.
