Please join us for a very special Four Stories Tokyo, combining readings with a celebration of the Tokyo launch of three new books, including Four Stories founder Tracy Slater's Good Shufu: Finding Love, Self & Home on the Far Side of the World, a National Geographic Great New Read and Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Selection. The theme of the evening will be "Married to the Mob: Four Writers on Love, Travel & Life as a Gaijin Wife," featuring four American women writers as they read a bit from their work, toast the launch of their new books, and make a little merry:
- Leza Lowitz, Yoga goddess, founder of Tokyo's Sun & Moon studio, & author of Here Comes the Sun: A Journey to Adoption in 8 Chakras (Stone Bridge Press)
- Grace Buchele Mineta, Cartoonist, founder of the hit blog & You Tube channel Texan in Tokyo, & author of Confessions of a Texan in Tokyo.
- Tracy Slater, Four Stories founder & author of The Good Shufu: Finding Love, Self & Home on the Far Side of the World (Putnam), a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Selection & National Geographic Great New Read.
- Liane Wakabayashi, Founder of Genesis Arts Center of Tokyo & author of a memoir-in-progress about--you guessed it--life as a gaijin wife!
