  • Japan Society of New Orleans cordially invites you to the inaugural meeting of its newest committee, the Kwaidan Book Club—the “Read Japan” aspect of Japan Society of New Orleans.

    Named in honor of Lafcadio Hearn, whose writings introduced the 19th century world to the unique cultures of New Orleans and Japan, the Kwaidan Book Club will explore various aspects of Japanese culture through the written word. From the classical to the modern—literary fiction, genre fiction and manga alike—Kwaidan Book Club will read and discuss a wide range of works with Japan as the unifying theme.

    Do you know what Hayao Miyazaki and a British children's book might have in common? What work of Japanese literature is credited as the world's first novel? Which Japanese author has been mentioned for several years as a possible recipient of the Nobel Prize in Literature? What a light novel is and how it relates to Japanese manga, animation and films? Which once local author writes detective mystery novels based in feudal Japan? Come join us to “Read Japan” and find out!

    Our first meeting will take place on Saturday, February 13th at 4 P.M. at Tubby & Coo’s Mid-City Book Shop at 631 N Carrollton Ave, New Orleans, LA 70119. If you have any questions, please contact Gissel Ferriol at ferriolgissel@gmail.com or Lauren Brown at lterranova1@gmail.com
