About the event
Hachiko is well known as the Japanese Akita dog who waited for his owner at Shibuya train station for almost 10 years after the owner's passing. The Japan Society of Boston is celebrating the 100th anniversary of Hachiko's birth with an author talk with Pamela S. Turner, writer of Hachiko: The True Story of a Loyal Dog, a children's book that spread the story of his unwavering loyalty to many.
Pamela Turner will be discussing this book along with her other publications such as Samurai Rising, as well as other topics such as her own personal connection to Japan and her writing process. She will be joined in conversation by Professor Susan Napier, a local expert on Japanese culture and art.
A portion of donations received for this event will be given to Big East Akita Rescue. They are a nonprofit, hands-on, volunteer run Akita rescue group covering the Northeast to help unwanted, abused, and neglected Akitas in need. Please consider donating to help support their cause.
