Nor Cal: Reading of “How to be an American Housewife”

04 Feb

The Japanese American Museum of San Jose and the Yu-Ai Kai Book club will sponsor a reading of “How to be an American Housewife,” with author Margaret Dilloway at 1 p.m at the JAMsj, 535 North Fifth St. in San Jose’s Japantown.

The novel about mothers and daughters and the pull of tradition, tells the story of Shoko, a Japanese woman who married a GI, and her grown daughter Sue, a divorced mother whose life as an American housewife has not been what she’d expected.

The book club meets the first Friday of every other month and 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 are readily available at San Jose public libraries. Info: Contact Aggie Idemoto at (408) 268-4440 or aggie@jamsj.org .
