Author spotlight: Sarah Audsley, Writing Program Coodinator at the Vermont Studio Center
Former Frost Place Assistant to the Director Sarah Audsley has reviewed two new books by Asian-American authors for the Green Mountains Review online blog Books in Conversation. The first is a debut poetry collection titled Bodega by Su Hwang (Milkweed, 2019), and the other is a book of essays focused on the real-world, pervasive experiences of prejudice aimed at Asian-Americans titled Minor Feelings by Cathy Park Hong (One World, 2020).
The reviews are insightful, personal, and intelligent, and they portray a real sensitivity for both the authors’ work and the over-arching concerns facing Asian-Americans. The Frost Place would like to congratulate Sarah for her ongoing work, both in poetry and in prose. Her clear vision about the lived experiences of Asian-Americans both in daily life and in written work is inspiring to read.
