Contemprary Tanka Poet Mariko Kitakubo. Article details.

Apr. 23, I performed bilingual tanka reading at a primary school in Montreal

Apr. 23rd, I presented Japanese-English bilingual tanka reading performance, with the theme of "Prayer for Peace", to the highest grade student of Ecole Jean Grou primary school. More than 40 students in the class room, all of them are 11 to 12 years old.
French translation was presented by the teachers.

I was very happy to have had an opportunity for the young generation got in touch with tanka beyond the boundery of border.
After my presentation, we enjoyed Origami. I think it turned out to be an enjoyable opportunity to get to know Japanese culture.

Due to the school rules, I cannnot show their lovely faces.
