This is a Poetry event featuring three generations of poets, at the Japanese American Museum of San Jose on January 18, 2014.

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 special guest, Nisei poet Mitsuye Yamada (author, Camp Notes), as well as Sansei poets Roger Abe, Stefanie Kaku, and Ann Muto (author, Open Passage). They are all experts at honoring the legacy of poetry which enlightens their lives. An audience open mic will close the program.
