Reading & Book Signing
The samurai warriors of ancient Japan lived by a moral and ethical code known as Bushido, the way of the warrior. This code of chivalry sculpted their culture and influenced all aspects of their lives and society. After the Japanese earthquake and tsunami of March 2011, the world witnessed the characteristics of Bushido, including courage, integrity, benevolence, respect, honesty, honor, and loyalty. Lori Tsugawa's The Courage of a Samurai presents these principles as a guide for navigating the challenges we all face with examples of individuals who exemplify their meaning in today's world. Join us for an awe-inspiring book reading and signing with Tsugawa.
