Janine Oshiro Reading

  • 10/24/2018 5:30 p.m.
Janine Oshiro is the author of Pier, winner of the 2010 Kundiman Poetry Prize, published by Alice James Books. She has been awarded the 2011 Elliot Cades Award for Literature in Hawaii and the 2013 Asian American Literary Award for Poetry. She lives in Hawaii, where she is a licensed massage therapist. Of her collection Pier, Cole Swensen writes, “As if through an echolocation of brilliant and insistent off-rhyme, these poems effect a delicate placement of self into body, body into world, world into word. And at the center of it all is even more delicate loss. Oshiro’s Pier takes its measure in precise instances that ache with intelligence. A truly masterful first book.” Janine graduated from Whitworth University (then College) in 1996.
