Courageous Story of Quakers Next for JAMsj Book Club 

The Japanese American Museum of San Jose’s Book Club will meet Saturday, Aug. 2, 1:00pm to discuss Quiet Heroes -- A Century of American Quakers’ Love and Help for the Japanese and Japanese Americans by Tsukasa Sugimura. Reading this book reveals life’s values and gives pause to reflect upon one’s own life. The Friends worked quietly and did much to support Japanese and Japanese-Americans.

Books may be purchased at the Museum Store: Thursday - Sunday, 12:00 - 4:00pm. 

Questions? Contact JAMsj at (408) 294-3138 or Aggie Idemoto, Book Club Facilitator at aggie@jamsj.org. The Book Club is open to all and meets the first Saturday, every other month.

Cost: Free with admission to the museum (non-members, $5; students and seniors over age 65, $3; JAMsj members and children under 12, free).
