Misuzu Kaneko writing preservation meeting offer poetry: Misuzu Kaneko "star and dandelion" book: Shoko Kanazawa "there is though we do not see" 2014

Nursery rhyme poet, Misuzu Kaneko who recorded life on small thing in surroundings, and left poetry full of gentleness. Her deep look "that thing which is unnecessary to the world does not have" captures heart of many fans.
Shoko Kanazawa studies under mother, Yasuko while bearing handicap called Down's syndrome in calligraphers born in 1985. Calligraphy (kigo) of title of TV saga "Kiyomori Taira", the book including holding of speech and private exhibition at the New York United Nations Headquarters spread out abroad and give us courage and gentleness to live.
Yasuko who carried Shoko in 1984 when "the complete works of Misuzu Kaneko" were issued "is thing not to see," is shocked by one paragraph of poetry of toiumisu ゞ and obtains the complete works. There was poetry of pararanihaitsumomisu ゞ of growth of Shoko.
Two who are totally different in the way of expression in the times. When the work came, we are surprised by what soul of two agrees with wonderfully.
By book exhibition, you introduce life and work of misu ゞ and display step as calligrapher of Shoko and masterpiece, work which wrote phrase of poetry of pro-shindamisu ゞ and letter to symbolize in daily life more and see the world of sounding poetry and book.
