Paul Tran

Reading

Paul Tran (United States) shines in their readings and bursts with joy of life. They debuted in 2022 - critics loved their first collection All the flowers kneeling - but began as a slam poet and has been a popular speaker and performer for more than a decade. Tran really loves the investigative nature of poetry; the poem not as a conclusion, but as the beginning of a new poem. 

This is a program with Dutch poet Simone Atangana Bekono. In this program, both poets read their entire festival selection with recent work.

Host: Lisanne Snelders
