Book Discussion: The Buddha in the Attic

Join us on Tuesday August 11 at 6:30pm to discuss The Buddha in the Attic by Julie Otsuka.   

A gorgeous novel that tells the story of a group of young women brought from Japan to San Francisco as “picture brides” nearly a century ago. In eight unforgettable sections, The Buddha in the Attic traces the extraordinary lives of these women, from their arduous journeys by boat, to their arrival in San Francisco and their tremulous first nights as new wives; from their experiences raising children who would later reject their culture and language, to the deracinating arrival of war.
