The JAMsj Book Club will discuss the book
Nothing Left in My Hands
by Kazuko Nakane

Note: The book club now meets the first Saturday of every other month starting with this June event.

"Nothing Left in My Hands is a moving portrait of the lives of early Japanese immigrants in Pajaro Valley, California. Regarded as highly skilled berry growers, the Issei—first-generation Japanese immigrants—were instrumental in the development of strawberry farming in the region. Nakane interviewed those still living in the area in the early 1980s and, in Nothing Left in My Hands, used their own words to narrate their progress in America, from their lives as farmers to the trying periods of anti-immigrant legislation and banishment to internment camps during World War II, and finally to the resumption of their lives after the war."

The book club is always open to new members. Selections are chosen collaboratively at the end of each meeting and align with the JAMsj mission: the celebration of Japanese American art, history, and culture. Books may be purchased at the JAMsj museum store.

If you have questions, please contact Aggie Idemoto at (408) 268-4440 or aggie@jamsj.org.
