Poetry in Translation
with Liana Langa
and Margita Gailitis

Hosted by Neil Wilson
"Langa opens the floodgates of words as she questions and challenges our daily existence with an intensity that burns. She implores us to lean in together and awaken all of our collective senses as we explore our past history, our present relationships, and the future directions our lives could take.
— Gay Allison
Liana Langa
Margita Gailitis
