Sally Wen Mao at the New York Public Library

“This whole place has always meant, to me, that this work does have some consequence and meaning in the world.” In this video, Sally Wen Mao speaks about her research at the New York Public Library during her Cullman Center fellowship, including discovering a first edition of Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking-Glass, which inspired her poetry collection The Kingdom of Surfaces (Graywolf Press, 2023). Mao’s collection is featured in Page One in the September/October issue of Poets & Writers Magazine.
