Write a Haiku with Basho and Freeman

Collaborate with the late haiku master Basho and author Freeman Ng on a unique poem you can take home. Also pick up the beautiful picture book Basho’s Haiku Journey, a great gift for young readers this holiday season. The event will take place Nov. 28 from 2-4 p.m. at Magers & Quinn Booksellers, 3038 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis. The book details the story of the first great Haiku master, Matsuo Basho, who gave up his comfortable city existence for a wayfaring life, eventually making five famous journeys across the length and breadth of 17th century Japan. Written entirely in haiku and illustrated with lovingly hand-painted art by Cassandra Rockwood Ghanem.
