March: My Year of Meats

Our next book is a novel by filmmaker Ruth Ozeki: My Year of Meats. In it, the main character, Jane, a Japanese-American, takes a job producing a TV show called “My American Wife,” designed to promote American beef in Japan. And in Japan, a viewer, Akiko, makes the meat recipe of the week, every week, for her husband’s dinner… and then goes to the bathroom to throw up. Eventually, the two women’s lives intersect, and they discover more about beef, love, and children.

Join us on Tuesday, March 13, at 6pm, at O’Henry’s Coffees at Brookwood Mall place TBD (check back for an announcement soon) for our discussion of My Year of Meats.
