The Festival favorite is back. Competing translations of poems vie for audience approval and evoke an illuminating discussion about interpretation and the choices made by both poet and translator. Featuring Chinese poet  Un Sio San and Catalan poet Maria Cabrera Callís and translators Bonnie Huie, Amanda Lee Koe, Mara Faye Lethem, and Mary Ann Newman. Both rounds of translation are followed by audience Q&A with the poets and translators. Hosted by Michael Moore and Jeremy Tiang.
