JET-linked book event in Seattle

Via JETAA Pacific Northwest:

Hello JET Alumni,
Here’s some cool information about two events in Seattle for the release of Todd Shimoda’s new novel Oh! A mystery of mono no aware.
Oh! is published by Seattle independent publisher Chin Music Press, which publishes books on contemporary Japan. There are two JET Alumni on the Chin Music Press team: founder Bruce Rutledge, ALT, Chiba Prefecture (1985-87, MEF Program) and designer Joshua Powell, ALT, Saitama Prefecture (2005-07).

Oh! was just chosen as one of NPR’s Summer Reading Picks:
“The book itself is a fine work of art, with a gorgeous, embossed cover, rice paper-thin pages, and textured paper inserts with illustrations that offer clues to Zack’s fate — a triumphant kick in the pants for anyone who doubts the future of paper-and-ink books.” — NPR
