Join author and poet Jane Wong for a poetry reading and virtual interview hosted by Michelle Callaghan, Head of Adult and Seniors Services at Richmond Public Library.
The recipient of the James W. Ray Distinguished Artist award for Washington artists, Jane Wong’s show “After Preparing the Altar, the Ghosts Feast Feverishly” was exhibited at the Frye Art Museum in 2019, with a new interpretation of this work exhibited at the Richmond Art Gallery as part of the NOURISH exhibition January 22 – April 3, 2022.
