G Yamazawa in Mass. this week!

"Dear Grandma" at the National Poetry Slam 2014 Semi-Finals

The awesome wordsmith, poet and emcee G Yamazawa, will be in Massachusetts this week with two shows!

Nisei George Masao Yamazawa, Jr. hails from Durham, North Carolina and is currently based in Washington, DC Los Angeles (11/20/15: oops, he just moved). Over the past six years he's won a slew of awards and has performed everywhere from open mic nights to local and national poetry slams to the Sundance Film Festival and the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. G has also worked as a Teaching Artist Poet with non-profit Split This Rock, facilitating writing and performance workshops for inner city youth in the DC public school system. He doesn't get to the Northeast often so this is a rare chance to see him perform here. Both shows are free and open to the public.
