Sunday, August 12, 2018 Lincoln Park Zoo, 2001 N Clark Street, Chicago, IL 60614 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Come join members of the YPC for a scavenger hunt adventure at the Lincoln Park Zoo! The scavenger hunt will consist of exploring the zoo in search of clues to trivia based on the zoo and its animal inhabitants. Answers to questions will be a mix of both writing and photographs taken of your finds, so you will certainly be put to the test!

The questions will be in both English and Japanese (and you can respond in either language), giving you an opportunity to practice your language skills and maybe even learn a few new words along the way.

Registration can be made as a group (max of 4 people) or individually, where you will be assigned to a group, so you can sign u with your friends or make new friends on the hunt. The event is open to YPC/JETAA/AAAYA members and non-members in hopes that everyone can come together to network, share their knowledge of trivia, and most importantly, have fun!

People can register (RVSP by 08/05) to the event through this link and JETAA members can pay the member price ($2 for members and $5 for non-members).

Underground: The Tokyo Gas Attack and the Japanese Psyche By Haruki Murakami

"In this haunting work of journalistic investigation, Haruki Murakami tells the story of the horrific terrorist attack on Japanese soil that shook the entire world.

On a clear spring day in 1995, five members of a religious cult unleashed poison gas on the Tokyo subway system. In attempt to discover why, Haruki Murakmi talks to the people who lived through the catastrophe, and in so doing lays bare the Japanese psyche. As he discerns the fundamental issues that led to the attack, Murakami paints a clear vision of an event that could occur anytime, anywhere."
