Naoko Fugimoto Poetry Reading

Naoko Fugimoto Poetry Reading

Wednesday, September 22, 2021 - 4:00 pm

Naoko Fujimoto reads from her latest book Glyph: Graphic Poetry=Trans. Sensory (Tupelo Press, 2021). The event will take place in person in the Bartlett Courtyard and simultaneously on Zoom. Fujimoto’s poetry combines words with handmade images to create new experiences with a traditional Japanese style of Emaki. Emaki is an illustrated text, where pictures are drawn on a scroll, conveying a story and side-stories. This event is funded by the Dr. H. W. Reninger Endowed Lecture Series and sponsored by the Department of Languages & Literatures, the North American Review, and the English Club. Copies of the North American Review’s Fall 2021 issue will be available at the event, which includes Fujimoto’s graphic poem “Offshore of Rikuzentakata.” The UNI Bookstore will also be at the event to sell Fujimoto’s most recent book, Glyph: Graphic Poetry=Trans. Sensory, or if you simply can’t wait, you can purchase it here
