Mitsu Suzuki Sensei, the widow of Zen Center’s founder, Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, was born on April 23, 1914. Zen Center honors her 100th birthday this year with an event on April 26, celebrating the release of her new book, A White Tea Bowl: 100 Haiku from 100 Years of Life. In addition, a monthlong exhibit of photographs, historical and recent, hangs in the City Center Art Lounge and includes two of these below, among several others.
