Live reading with Q&A. "Painting Peace" traces Tanahashi's legendary career as a creative peace activist and a leading translator of Zen Master Dogen (one of the founders of the Soto Zen school). He also reflects on his childhood in worn-torn Japan and the influence of his father, an important figure in the Japanese military who would later become a Shinto priest and dedicate his own life to the cause of world peace. Born in Japan in 1933, Tanahashi is an artist, writer, translator, and peace and environmental activist. He has produced over 40 books in English and Japanese.
