The next meeting of the Japanese American Museum of San Jose's (JAMsj) Book Club will be to discuss Jay Rubin's book, The Sun Gods. This book tells the story of Bill, a young American boy who was forced into a life of internment with his Japanese-born surrogate mother. Two decades after his experience at the Minidoka Internment Camp, memories of his long-lost mother continue to haunt Bill, sparking an arduous journey that leads him to find his Japanese mother and learn the truth about their shared past.
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).
No RSVP required.
