Alma Haus Press is about seeking knowledge and then pondering upon what has been learned. When we feel passionate about a subject we will research it more, or just let our passion out on the page, sometimes in prose and sometimes in poetry. We offer to present others' work here, with permission, but do not offer monetary compensation. Learn more about us on our mission page.
6 August, ~ Hiroshima Day. We Present: A Plea for Peace & Friendship every where, especially the East & West. Humans on this unique Planet Earth should be able to work together to make our home a better world. Our publication was a creative effort between me and my colleague friend, Chigusa Ohtsuka:.
1995 ~ We personally distributed about 200 copies in green 8.5" x 11" (letter) size paper, at the Japanese Memorial Park in downtown Portland, Oregon along the northern edge of Waterfront Park on the occasion of the Hiroshima & Nakasaki rememberence held by local peace promoters (WILPF & Oregon PSR for examples) to commemorate the the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima & Nagasaki a couple of days later in 1945.
Chigusa and I represent the East & the West.
