Japanese American National Museum: “Nikkei Uncovered: A Poetry Reading”

May 13, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Join us for our 2nd annual Nikkei Uncovered virtual poetry reading with a powerful lineup of poets previously featured in Discover Nikkei’s “Nikkei Uncovered: a poetry column,” hosted by author, poet, and performer traci kato-kiriyama.
This year, we reached out to pairs of poets who will be reading works in conversation with each other. Each pair has their own unique relationship that will bring depth of conversation and insight into their poetry. kato-kiriyama will also provide prompts for audience members to write and reflect on.
Featured poets:
– CURTISS TAKADA ROOKS and MARIKO FUJIMOTO ROOKS [http://www.discovernikkei.org/…/12/17/nikkei-uncovered-49/]
– SHŌ TANAKA [http://www.discovernikkei.org/…/2/15/nikkei-uncovered-15/] and PAULETTE M. MORENO
RSVPS ARE REQUIRED. Suggested donation $10.
