Bainbridge Island Japanese American Community

A Matter of Loyalty: A Poet’s Reckoning with Sharon Hashimoto

2022 Washington State Book Award winner in poetry, Sharon Hashimoto is joined by Bainbridge Islanders Lily Kodama and Clarence Moriwaki to examine ideas of citizenship, civic engagement, and the legacy of community trauma. Incorporating stories, images, and observations from the Japanese American experience on Bainbridge Island, as well as excerpts from Hashimoto’s 2021 Off the Grid Poetry Prize-wining collection, More American, this presentation explores the importance of allyship in a world that is still too often unjust.

BIMA presents this event in recognition of February’s Japanese American Day of Remembrance.
