Program Description

Event Details

Join us for this engaging discussion of thought-provoking non-fiction titles. In May, we will be discussing Stranger in the Shogun’s City: A Japanese Woman and Her World by Amy Stanley. The daughter of a Buddhist priest, Tsuneno was born in a rural Japanese village and was expected to live a traditional life much like her mother’s. Instead, her strong-willed temperament resulted in three divorces, leading Tsuneno to create a new life for herself in Edo, a bustling metropolis at its peak. Read this enthralling portrait of an intrepid 19th-century Japanese woman and the city she loved.
