Talking Taiko

Poetry and Music to celebrate YURI KAGEYAMA’s “The New and Selected Yuri _ Writing From Peeling Till Now” from Ishmael Reed Publishing Co.

“These poems are honest. Blunt. When she says that writing a poem is like taking ‘a bungee jump,’ she means it. Very few of the world poets have Yuri Kageyama’s range.”
– Ishmael Reed.
