An evening of storytelling, creativity and outreach for Boston teens to support young people in Japan affected by and recovering from the March 2011 earthquake & tsunami disasters.

Tomo,
meaning “friend” in Japanese, is a collection of short stories and graphic art for readers age 12 and up, contributed by authors and artists from around the world, all of whom share a connection to Japan.
Editor Holly Thompson (a Massachusetts native), Boston’s own Tak Toyoshima (“Secret Asian Man”) & other contributors will share their stories and help museum guests write or draw their own letters of support to teens in the hardest hit areas of Japan.

Books will be available for purchase, & proceeds from sales go to the Japanese NPO Hope for Tomorrow.
