In partnership with the Asian American / Asian Research Institute – CUNY, poet and editor Russell C. Leong will read from MothSutra, a collection of drawings and poetry about an Asian delivery man who rides a bicycle throughout Manhattan as he “cycles through his life from East to West.” Leong aims to evoke the inner lives, meditations, hopes, and dreams of individuals generally invisible to those who order “takeout.” MothSutra was first presented at the Bowery Poetry Club, the University of Hong Kong Black Box Theatre, and the City University of New York. He will be introduced via video by the late Chinese American labor historian, Peter Kwong. A bilingual Q&A session will follow, conducted in English and Chinese.

*Artwork donated by the artist will benefit the community organization, Fuzhou America.

與紐約市立大學亞裔研究所合作,詩人兼編輯梁志英將朗讀《蛾經》中的部分內容。這本繪畫和詩集講述了一位騎自行車穿越曼哈頓的亞裔外賣郎的故事,他「從東到西騎行,經歷自己的人生」。梁志英旨在喚起那些通常對訂餐者來說「隱形」送餐員的內心生活、冥想、希望和夢想。 《蛾經》首次在波威裡詩社、香港大學黑盒劇場和紐約市立大學呈現。已故華裔美國勞工歷史學家鄺治中將透過短片介紹梁志英。活動結束後將進行中英雙語問答環節。

*藝術家捐贈的作品將用於資助社區組織「福州青年會」。
