Monica Sok details her debut poetry collection 'A Nail the Evening Hangs On.'
Sok, a Cambodian American poet, is joined in conversation by Sony Ton-Aime, Chautauqua’s director of literary arts, to discuss her new work, which examines the Cambodian genocide in the 1970s. The daughter of former refugees, Sok seeks to reclaim the Cambodian narrative with tenderness and an imagination that moves towards wholeness and possibility with 'A Nail the Evening Hangs On.'
