A guest post by José Teodoro, in residence at Historic Joy Kogawa House in January and February 2021.
Jude Neale will make it her mission to act as an archivist for the family home and with permission by Joy Kogawa herself. Her haiku-like short poems tell intimate stories of Joy Kogawa’s life and house.
