Book Presentation - The Closed Hand: Images of the Japanese in Modern Peruvian Literature

Thursday, Mar 21, 2013 7:00p
Americas Society New York, NY

Author Rebecca Riger Tsurumi and fellow writers and scholars Gerardo Renique, Araceli Tinajero, and Miguel Angel Zapata will discuss Tsurumi’s acclaimed new book (Purdue University Press), which explores Peruvian attitudes toward the Japanese since their arrival in Peru in 1899. The book examines Japanese characters created by non-Japanese Peruvian authors, and presents the “insider” perspectives of Japanese-Peruvian poets José Watanabe and Doris Moromisato. In English and Spanish.
