A poetry reading with JESSE GLASS, JEROME ROTHENBERG, AMY UYEMATSU, HIROMI ITO and MARTHE REED.
It was Friday, March 11, 2011 when a 9.0 magnitude earthquake rattled off the coast of Japan. The most powerful known earthquake to hit the island nation triggered a series of tsunamis. Buildings shook and toppled. Entire villages were washed away. It was a tragedy that resulted in nearly 20,000 people dead and the most expensive natural disaster in world history. One year later, the suffering continues and the need for relief remains unabated. Ahadada Books founder Jesse Glass reads with Marthe Reed and our own Amy Uyematsu at a special fund raising reading to aid the on-going relief effort.
