Friday 21st February 18:00 - 19:30 at Cambridge
Hiromi Itō, born in 1955 in Tokyo, is one of the most important poets in Japan.

Programmed by Modern Culture in partnership with the Japan Foundation and Sheffield University. Supported by the Great Britian Sasakawa Foundation, the Japan Society and the National Centre for Writing. Part of the Japan-UK Season of Culture 2019-20.
