Book Club

PNWJETAA has been gathering to discuss Japanese, Japanese-American and Japan-related literature since May 2012. Though most members read the books in English translation, we highly encourage members to read in original Japanese if they are able, as this offers very interesting perspective in terms of translation style, authenticity and quality. Book Club meetings are held every 6-8 weeks for about 1-1.5 hours usually on Sundays at 3:00 pm at Fresh Flours on Phinney Ridge on Zoom (someday we’ll be back to meeting in person). For more information or to partner with us, please email
