Afternoon Book Club

February 20 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

books-484754_1280The Afternoon Book Club will discuss The Japanese Lover by Isabel Allende.

Who is sending lovely little cards and gifts to Alma Belasco, a resident of San Francisco’s Lark House nursing home? To find out, we’ll have to go back to 1939, when Alma’s parents send her from Poland to San Francisco to live with a wealthy aunt and uncle after Germany invades. She and Ichimei Fukuda, the Japanese gardener’s son, fall in love but are wrenched apart when thousands of Japanese Americans are interned during the war. Through the decades, they keep their passion alive-and secret.
