In November, 2017, we Invited Canadian Laureate Poet, Fred Wah, to read at the International Festival of Mayan Culture in Merida, Mexico. Fifteen years before, Fred Wah spent a month on an arts residency in that city. This residency was marked by the devastating effects of hurricane Isadora, storm that severely hit the Yucatan Peninsula. During that period, Fred Wah wrote the first section of his book "Is a door". The poem Wah reads on this video is part of this book.
