Poet and multimedia artist Sam Roxas-Chua 姚 (Yao) will read/present from his work on Tuesday, Oct. 25 at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art as a guest of the WSU Visiting Writers Series, a system-wide offering of creative readings, class visits, workshops, and collaborative exchanges across intellectual and artistic disciplines.

Roxas-Chua has read for PEN International, city government events, and is currently an artist-in-residence at the Portland Chinatown Museum. The in-person reading begins at 5 p.m. and will be livestreamed via the VWS YouTube channel.

Roxas-Chua is the author of “SayingYour Name Three Times Underwater,” “Echolalia in Script, Fawn Language,” and the podcast “Dear Someone Somewhere,” an audio-journal project. Poet Tyehimba Jess describes Sam’s poems as “surreal yet rooted in palpable color and history … it transcends oceans, blends geographies, and bleeds a multitongued heritage for us to better find ourselves.”
