The next meeting of the Japanese American Museum of San Jose’s (JAMsj) book club will be to discuss Gil Asakawa's book, Being Japanese American . Being Japanese American is a fun and entertaining sourcebook, as well as a celebration of Japanese American culture, history, and heritage.  While detailing favorite foods, customs, words, games and holidays, it explores the painful history of immigration and WWII internment, together with suggestions for connecting to your Japanese American community and passing on traditions across generations and into intermarried families. 

The book club meets at 1:00 p.m. the first Saturday of every other month at JAMsj. Meetings are open to the general public, and books are available for purchase at the museum store. Questions? Contact Aggie Idemoto at (408) 294-3138 or aggie@jamsj.org .

Cost: Free with admission to the museum (nonmembers, $5; students and seniors over age 65, $3; JAMsj members and children under 12, free).
RSVP: No RSVP required.
