In the 1980s, Maxine Hong Kingston and Leslie Marmon Silko traveled through China together. They reunited at the Poetry Center on January 31 to read from their new memoirs, I Love a Broad Margin to My Life (Kingston) and The Turquoise Ledge (Silko). Said Ms. Silko about Ms. Kingston: “She is one of our best writers, [displaying] the generosity of spirit and the luminous prose we so urgently need in this time of war after war.” Said Ms. Kingston about Ms. Silko: “To read [Silko] is to hear the voices of the ancestors and spirits telling us where we came from, who we are, and where we must go.”
