Author Talk: Janice Nimura
5:00 pm

Janice Nimura tells the fascinating story of three young Japanese girls who in 1871 were sent by the Japanese government to study in the United States, learn Western ways, and return to help nurture a new generation of enlightened men to lead Japan. Daughters of the Samurai vividly portrays the young women in their historical context; the education of women became their true mission. Cornwall plays a part!
