Award-winning poet Xue Di will give a multi-media presentation of his poetry entitled “Across Borders” as part of the Princeton Festival on Sunday, June 23 at noon in the Princeton Public Library. The public is invited to attend. The Library is co-sponsoring the free event, which takes place just before the Festival’s premiere performance of the opera Nixon in China.

“Across Borders” will open with projections of gorgeous scenery from China, accompanied by Chinese classical music. Xue Di will read his poetry in Chinese, followed by English translations read by prominent American poet Jonathan Wells. Xue Di will also take questions from the audience and will offer comments and perspectives in English to heighten understanding about China and its people, and poetry in the East. A book signing concludes the reading. Refreshments will be served.
