Daughters of the Samurai - JASC YPC and JETAA Chicago Book Club

A new twist on an old favorite! The JETAA Chicago and Japan America Society of Chicago YPC Book Club continues this November!

Join us for our next meeting on Wednesday, November 17th, from 6-7 pm CST with a special guest! Our book club will focus on highlighting voices and stories with a strong connection to Japan. For our third meeting we have chosen Daughters of the Samurai. Written by Janice P. Nimura, the book opens in 1871, and follows the story of five young girls who were sent by the Japanese government to the United States. Their mission: learn Western ways and return to help nurture a new generation of enlightened men to lead Japan.

Thanks to the efforts of the JASC, our discussion will be joined by the author herself, Janice P. Nimura! To learn more about Janice, click here!

Sign up for the book club here!

Be sure to pick up a copy of the book and then join us for an evening of casual discussion in a virtual space via Zoom! Registrations are limited, so grab a spot while you can! If you have any questions, please reach out to
