Join us for a demonstration of a traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony. This event will commemorate the creation of The Lillian Maeda Memorial Tea and Haiku Collection. Lillian Maeda passed away in 2016, after having been a vibrant contributor to Maui’s Tea and Haiku community for many years. This Collection, in her memory, consists of an array of books and periodicals covering varying aspects of traditional Japanese arts and culture, with a focus on both the formal tea ceremony and the poetry known as haiku. Collected from, and donated by, members of the local Maui tea and haiku communities, this Collection will be maintained for the expressed benefit to local enthusiasts and students of these two major art forms. Both English and Japanese language volumes are represented in this Collection; and all volumes will be available for public reading in the Wailuku Public Library’s Research/Reference section.
All programs are subject to change. If you require an auxiliary aid or accommodation due to a disability, please contact the library at least 7 days before the program date.
