    The Kansai FEW Readers Group is a casual gathering of readers who share what they’ve been reading lately. Any kind of book goes! Participants have shared fiction, non-fiction, books of poetry, and even books in languages other than English. If this sounds like something you would enjoy, please join us!

    Here is the plan:

    1. Meet at the scheduled time on ZOOM.
    2. Each participant has time to share a book (or books) they are reading or recommend. There will also be time for questions.
    3. The book(s) discussed can be fiction or non-fiction.
    4. You can use your time as you like. However, please don’t just recount the story or give spoilers.
    5. Once you have spoken, sit back, relax, and get more ideas for your reading wish list!

    We hope to see you there!

    • This is not a book club. We are not reading one book together.
    • You are not under any obligation to attend regularly. Come as often, or as seldom, as you like.
    • You are welcome even if you don't have a book to share. Just let us know at the beginning so the time per person can be adjusted accordingly.

    FEW Kansai February 2023 Meeting

    The Beauty of Japan:

    Bringing Culture to Life through

    Traditional Artisans

    with

    Yuko Sangu

    Japan has a rich history of arts and crafts, with artisans mastering traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. However, as Japanese society has modernized, their works are often overlooked or seen as irrelevant. In such times, what can be done to support traditional arts and artisans? This month, we will learn about one individual’s efforts to make a difference.

    Yuko Sangu, our February guest speaker, is passionate about sharing the crafts of traditional artisans and igniting interest in their work in Japan and abroad. Join us for an inside look into the world of traditional Japanese artisans and leave with a deeper appreciation of the significance of their work in our changing modern world.
