Rebecca Suzuki – Book Launch

Congratulations to MFA alum Rebecca Suzuki, who’s award-winning chapbook, When My Mother Is Most Beautiful, had a wonderful launch at The World’s Bookshop in Jackson Heights, earlier this month.

Friends, family, and literary admirers of all kinds packed the beautiful independent bookshop, to hear Suzuki read from her work. It was truly heartwarming to see all the support from the MFA community and beyond!

When My Mother Is Most Beautiful is at once a powerful love letter to a mother and to language itself, delving into complex questions of family, communication, culture, and connection. These poems chronicle the difficult art of navigating multiple cultural identities, examining how languages twist and morph across cultures through the imperfect act of translation, how they bind people together and keep them apart, and even how they could be reimagined to make a better world.

You can pick up this book at the book party, of course, or order a copy today from Small Press Distribution!
