“Nikkei Uncovered,” a poetry reading, will take place on Thursday, May 21, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. online.

Published on Discover Nikkei, “Nikkei Uncovered: a poetry column” shares poems each month from the Nikkei community around themes curated by author, poet, and performer traci kato-kiriyama.

Now, “Nikkei Uncovered” is going live, bringing together a powerful, intergenerational lineup of poets previously featured in the column to share their poetry in an online reading. Hosted by kato-kiriyama, the interactive reading and reflection will also include a short open-mic portion, where viewers will be able to sign up during the program to share their poetry.
