Contemprary Tanka Poet Mariko Kitakubo. Article details.

Oct. 8, I performed bilingual tanka reading in Sofia, Blugaria

Oct. 8th, I performed Japanese-English tanka reading at a literature event held at Sofia City Library, Bulgaria.
I tried my best to deliver message from soul to soul, because both English nor Japanese are not the audience's mother tongue.

I was very happy when the people gathered there were moved to tears, and gave me wonderful comments.
Ms. Iliyana Stoyanova made opening remarks.
