Buena Park Reads 2016

garden

Our sixth annual Buena Park Reads is underway. Every year we read one book together as a community. This year’s selection is Gail Tsukiyama’s The Samurai’s Garden, a poignant story set in 1930s Japan.

Stephen is a young Chinese painter who goes to his family’s summer home in a Japanese coastal village to recover from tuberculosis. There, he meets Matsu, a master gardener, and Sachi, a beautiful woman with leprosy, who change his life profoundly.

Be a part of this communal reading experience by reading this year’s selection (we have several copies at the library) and then joining us for one of our book discussion meetings in April.
