Kazuko Nishimura in New York
Kazuko Nishimura, one of the most prolific and well-known haiku poets in Japan, has had 10 books of her work published and in 2007 won the prestigious Haiku Poets Association Award for her collection entitled Shin-on. She will be conducting a traditional Japanese haiku gathering with us, so please come prepared with two of your best haiku, which you will write down on paper provided at the beginning of the meeting. The haiku will then be distributed randomly and anonymously among the attendees. We will all choose our favorites and Ms. Nishimura will comment on her favorites, ably assisted by the interpretation of Hiro Sato and Rachel Winograd. Don't miss this unique haiku cultural exchange with Ms. Nishimura and several other visiting poets from Japan!
For all who are interested, after the meeting we will go to dinner at around 6:00 p.m. at Dublin 6, an Irish bar/restaurant located at 575 Hudson Street between West 11th Street & Bank Street.
Try to RSVP to Rita for dinner NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 25.
