Chinese, American and German Poetry Collaboration

Over the last 150 years, Washington, DC’s Chinatown has been home to many immigrant groups. Each has contributed to the vibrancy and diversity of our neighborhood and our city. Three cultures - Chinese, American and German - are highlighted in this annual celebration of poetry and voice.
