    Excerpt from Mainichi Shimbun:

    The art of haiku was brought into the spotlight at Tokyo’s United Nations University on Nov. 8 in a library talk focusing on the works of Sweden’s Dag Hammarskjold, the second U.N. Secretary-General, who died in a plane crash in 1961.

    The event, commemorating the 60th anniversary of Japan’s Membership to the U.N., focused on haiku introduced in the book “A String Untouched, Dag Hammarskjold’s life in haiku and photographs.”
