An Artist of the Floating World

Our first adult book discussion for our fall session entitled "Encountering Asia" and sponsored by the Kansas Humanities Council will meet this Thursday at 6:30 p.m. We will be discussing the book "An Artist of the Floating World" by Kazuo Ishiguro. Here are some websites that may be helpful in learning more about this writer and his book:

Here is a nice page with general biographical information and a link to an interview with the writer:

and here is another site with some literary criticism of all of Ishiguro's works:

and more too from:
Montgomery County Public Libraries
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone on Thursday. If you are planning to attend and have not signed up, please do so immediately. I have brought back a collection of interesting Asian snacks and teas I picked up on a recent trip to Seattle for us to enjoy as well.

Thoroughly interesting! The
book club leader was so interesting
that I hated for the evening to come to an end. Thanks for the
refreshments and hospitality!
