"shell gathering" reading

Margaret Hehman-Smith, Naia, Deborah P Kolodji, Wendy Wright

Naia has updated the Southern California Haiku Study Group blog with photos and a write up of our haiku anthology launch and reading on August 30th.

It was a wonderful afternoon of haiku. My son said it was one of the best poetry readings he has attended. It was not too long, not too short, and each haiku poet had a distinctive voice and reading style. Some read their haiku straight, others read them as performance pieces. The accompaniment by Kathabela and Rick Wilson and the location in the Japanese gallery in the museum also added to the overall ambiance.
