A celebration of Issue One at Pacific Standard

On 29 November 2011, Tongue hosted a launch party to celebrate the release and publication of its first issue. Held in Brooklyn, at Pacific Standard, the evening featured contributors’ renditions of their own work and a good number of “embodied translations:” Rachel Eliza Griffiths, Rika Lesser, Idra Novey, and Geoffrey Nutter each shared the pieces which appear in Issue One; Ewa Crusciel enlisted Izabella Barry to read in her place, Sally Wen Mao asked Hossannah Asuncion to voice her poem, and Brian Oliu invited Rebecca Birmingham to perform for him.
