Shizue Harada came to the United States in the 1920s with her husband of arranged marriage. She did not become Sanae, a writer of a Japanese poetry form called senryu, until she had lived a full life, working factory jobs and raising two children. 

Sanae's daughter, Aiko Uyeki, has compiled her mother's poignant poetry in a collection that captures Sanae's strong Buddhist faith, her wry humor and simple wisdom, her musings about growing old and her approaching death. Complementing these poems is the artwork of Amy Uyeki, Sanae's granddaughter. With word and image, a picture is painted of the life of Shizue Harada, a Meiji-era wife whose story mirrors many first generation Japanese Americans who left familiar shores to seek the American dream. 

The Uyekis will present a reading of Sanae, Senryu Poet: Her Life in 5-7-5, highlighted with accompanying visual images called haiga created by her granddaughter Amy. 

The reading will be followed by a workshop that explores the medium of senryu, encouraging participants to write their own poems and suggesting techniques to get started. Examples of haiga or poem painting will be shared and there will be opportunities to create both senryu and haiga. Intergenerational participation is encouraged.

Reservations recommended to rsvp@janm.org or 213.625.0414 at least 48 hours prior.
