Senryu Poetry Reading and Workshop

Shizue Harada’s poignant poems, (pen name Sanae) along with artwork created by her granddaughter Amy Uyeki, are the subject of a poetry reading of Sanae, Senryu Poet: Her Life in 5-7-5, read by Amy and editor Aiko Uyeki, Sanae’s daughter.

Kumi Watanabe Schock will serve as translator.

Following the poetry reading, the Uyekis will conduct a workshop exploring the poetry medium of senryu and introducing the ancient art of haiga, which combines poetry with artwork.

The Nikkei (descendants of Japan) community are encouraged to participate. Both events are open to the public and free of charge. Another reading/workshop is being planned for this fall at the HSU Multicultural Center, Arcata.
