The Japan Society of Greater Hartford, Hello! West Hartford, and Noah Webster Library are proud to present Janice P. Nimura, the author of highly acclaimed “Daughters of the Samurai,” and her book talk and signing at Noah Webster Library at 20 South Main St., West Hartford, on Nov. 21 from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Her book was a New York Times and Oprah Winfrey’s Editors’ pick.
“Janice Nimura paints history in cinematic strokes and brings a forgotten story to vivid, unforgettable life” – Arthur Golden (Author, “Memoir of a Geisha”)
Nimura’s book, based on the true story, tells about the three Japanese girls who were sent by the Japanese government in 1871 to the United States. Their mission: learn Western ways and return to help nurture a new generation of enlightened men to lead Japan. The story takes an unexpected twist when the three, new women and thoroughly westernized, return home after 10 long years in the U.S. to find themselves strangers in a strange land.
The library will have copies of her book available and the author will share her writing process of this incredible book.
