She did not become&nbsp\;<em>Sanae</em>\, a w riter of a Japanese poetry form called&nbsp\;<em>senryu</em>\, until she h ad lived a full life\, working factory jobs and raising two children.&nbsp \;\n\nSanae's daughter\, Aiko Uyeki\, has compiled her mother's poignant p oetry in a collection that captures Sanae's strong Buddhist faith\, her wr y humor and simple wisdom\, her musings about growing old and her approach ing 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.&n bsp\;\n\nThe Uyekis will present a reading of Sanae\,&nbsp\;<em>Senryu Poe t: Her Life in 5-7-5</em>\, highlighted with accompanying visual images ca lled&nbsp\;<em>haiga</em>&nbsp\;created by her granddaughter Amy.&nbsp\;\n \nThe reading will be followed by a workshop that explores the medium of s enryu\, encouraging participants to write their own poems and suggesting t echniques to get started. Examples of haiga or poem painting will be share d and there will be opportunities to create both senryu and haiga. Interge nerational participation is encouraged.\n\nReservations recommended to rsv p@janm.org or 213.625.0414 at least 48 hours prior.\n\n<a href="http://www .janm.org/" target="_blank">www.janm.org</a>\n<a href="http://www.janm.org /" target="_blank"></a>\n<em>This project has been made possible by a gran t from the Alliance for California Traditional Arts\, in partnership with the Walter and Elise Haas Fund\, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation\ , and the James Irvine Foundation\, with sponsorship through the Ink Peopl e Center for the Arts.</em> SUMMARY:BOOK READING: "Sanae\, Senryu Poet: Her Life in 5-7-5" by Shizue Ha rada URL:/en/events/2010/11/06/book-reading-sanae-senryu-poet-her-life-in-5-7/ END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
