QCA’s LAB presents Talking to Bones, a poetry reading by David Mills. Mills is working on a chapbook of poems about the African Burial Ground in Lower Manhattan and would like the audience to gain an understanding of the interrelationship between the economies and slavery of the American North and South. Attendees will have an opportunity to provide feedback on Mills’ work and ask questions about his inspiration and creative process.

This immigrant destination and commercial center has surpassed its Manhattan antecedent in both population and new investment. Taiwanese rather than Cantonese at its core, downtown Flushing plays host to a variety of immigrant Chinese cultures. Rezoning and greater land availability support unusual real estate developments including office buildings, hotels, residential condos, specialty shops, cultural institutions, and malls. Take this Chinese Community tour with the official Queens Borough Historian Jack Eichenbaum. Personal recommendations will be distributed. Dine in more than 200 Asian restaurants.
When: Wednesday, May 24, 6-8PM
