Storytelling Saturday – Beato Goes to Japan

26 Jun 2018 2:44 PM | Anonymous

On Saturday, June 23rd, author Sucheta Rawal gave a reading of her book “Beato Goes to Japan” for local families at the Samuel Ulman Museum. The book features a fictional version of her cat Beato traveling to Japan and learning about Japanese culture with Kazumi-san, a character based off her real life friend. The real life Kazumi-san attended the event and gave origami lessons to the children, teaching them how to make paper cranes. JASA gave our “Japan in a Suitcase” presentation and offered Japanese snacks to the visitors. Thank you to everyone for coming and learning about Japan!

Keep an eye out for our other events and more chances to learn about Japanese culture!
