We are thrilled to be joined by author and special guest Karin Tanabe'02 as she leads a conversation about her new novel, “The Diplomat's Daughter.” Space is extremely limited, so register now!
Last year we were fortunate to host Karin Tanabe ‘02 for a fascinating discussion about her wildly successful third novel, “The Gilded Years.” In fact, that event was the inspiration for Book Club! We are thrilled to be joined by Karin once again as she leads a conversation about her new novel, “The Diplomat's Daughter.” While many Americans associate World War II with a parent or grandparent who fought bravely in Europe, Karin’s understanding of the war began with stories of her Japanese father running from American bombs. These memories, as well as those of family friends who were interned in a war relocation center, piqued Karin's curiosity and spurred her to write a love story born out of one of the most unlikely places--a mixed-race internment camp. “The Diplomat's Daughter” is a captivating and informed tale of three young people divided by the horrors of WWII and their journey back to one another. Hurtled together by war, passion and extraordinary acts of selflessness, the paths of these three remarkable young people will collide as the fighting on the Pacific front crescendos, in Karin’s portrait of a turning point in history. Tickets are just $10. Space is extremely limited, so register now!
