Grace Talusan Reads Joanne Diaz

By Shirley Wang

English Professor Grace Talusan reads three of Tufts Alum Joanne Diaz’s poems: “Metastasis, Boracay”, “Larry David and Corregidor”, and “77 Porter Street.”

Joanne is a self-described poet of politics, culture and history. In this interview, Grace uses Joanne’s poems to talk about post – WWII Filipino conflict remnants, gaps in U.S. history, and what it means to grow old after you graduate college.
