About the event

Do you love Japanese literature? The JSB Book Club will be meeting to discuss The Nakano Thrift Shop by Hiromi Kawakami.

From the author of Strange Weather in Tokyo comes this funny, heartwarming story about love, life, and human relationships that features a delightfully offbeat cast of characters. Among the jumble of paperweights, plates, typewriters and general bric-a-brac in Mr. Nakano's thrift store, there are treasures to be found. Each piece carries its own story of love and loss - or so it seems to Hitomi, when she takes a job there working behind the till.

Find a copy here. You are welcome to read any translation.

The JSB Book Club meets on the last Wednesday of every other month to discuss great modern Japanese novels. The purpose of our club is to strengthen the Boston community of Japan enthusiasts by creating a space for thoughtful and sociable discussion.

The club is limited to Japan Society of Boston Members. Interested in joining but not yet a Member of the Japan Society of Boston? Consider becoming a Member today!
