Add to Calendar 01-02-2012 01-02-2012 15 Thalia Book Club: "The Buddha in the Attic" Julie Otsuka, the 2011 National Book Award-nominated author of "When the Emperor Was Divine," discusses her spellbinding new novel about a group of Japanese picture brides who come to America in the early 1900s. Otsuka is joined by performer and essayist David Rakoff ("Fraud," "Half Empty"). The book traces the women's lives from their boat journey on which they imagine their husbands and concludes with their "disappearance" in World War II. Like Otsuka's first book, "The Buddha in the Attic" is about identity and what it means to be "other" in uncertain times. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=102096 Symphony Space true DD/MM/YYYY
