Two weeks ago, Koon Woon read at The Emerald Tablet in San Francisco, as part of their performance series “Under the Influence”. Thanks to the video below, you can hear him read Donald Justice’s “Incident in a Rose Garden (2),” in addition to Woon’s own award-winning poetry in Water Chasing Water.


“The most consistent intelligent wide-ranging committed press I know – Kaya is an example of how to turn ‘small’ books into literary arrows that shoot straight and true into the heart of our culture and (of course) ourselves.”

— Junot Díaz
