Sonoma County Book Festival to Début New Book
SEPTEMBER 1, 2012. Sonoma County Book Festival and Frankalmoigne announce the pre-release availability of a new book about the Japanese earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear meltdowns of March 2011.
The author chronicles the events as they occur, and reveals the uniquely Japanese way of remaining optimistic in the face of multiple catastrophes.
Along the way, the author draws on his three decades of travel in Japan to paint a picture of a beautiful country dealing with the hazards of modernity.
But the book is not as glum as we might be led to believe. The author is able to convey a sense of humor even as he faces the apparent end of the world.
