When I Grow Up I Want to Be a List of Further Possibilities: A Poetry Reading by Chen Chen

  • Lexington Depot 13 Depot Place Lexington, MA, 02420 United States (map)

In this ferocious and tender debut, Chen Chen conveys the loss, grief, and abundant joy that come with charting one's own path in identity, life, and love:

“I felt like I couldn’t be Chinese and American and gay all at the same time.” As someone who was struggling with his sexuality and thinking about identity—with immigrant parents and wondering how to come out, “Poems were a way for those different experiences to come together, for them to be in the same room.”
