US radio station broadcasts Vietnam’s poetry

Melodically Challenged, a radio show at Georgia State University, will broadcast a one-hour poetry show featuring Vietnamese poet Nguyen Phan Que Mai to commemorate the 15th Poetry Day of Vietnam on February 11.

Mai's poetry evokes the beauty of Vietnam and its people and addresses a turbulent time in the history of both Vietnam and the US.

Nguyen Phan Que Mai is the author of nine books of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction. The Los Angeles Review of Books, in their review of Que Mai's The Secret of Hoa Sen, called her "one of Vietnam's foremost contemporary poets."

Nguyen Phan Que Mai's poetry show will also be broadcast on other college and public radio stations across the US.
