Thank you for your understanding.

Ever wonder what your grandparents, parents or siblings thought or felt during the internment and its aftermath? Poetry gives voice to what cannot be spoken, distills experiences and exposes the universality of intimate moments. Issei tanka poems set the stage for Nisei poet Mitsuye Yamada (author, Camp Notes), sansei poets Roger Abe, Stefanie Kaku and Ann Muto, (author, Open Passage) to honor the legacy of poetry which enlightens their lives. Audience Open Mic closes program. RSVP required. PublcPrograms@JAMsj.org or call (408) 294-3138
