November Brown Bag

Please join us this Friday, November 4th at noon in the community rooms for William Graham’s review of the book Nikkei Farmer on the Nebraska Plains: a memoir by Kano Hisanori.

The memoir of Japanese-born Hisanori Kano, who immigrated to the United States in 1916 to learn and apply American agricultural practices on the Nebraska Plains. Ordained as an Episcopal minister and interned during WWII, Kano’s memoir reveals how he adapted to a changing American culture and landscape.

 

And be sure to stay after the review for a screening of An Old Fashioned Thanksgiving, a hallmark movie based on a short story by Louisa May Alcott featuring Jacqueline Bisset.

Struggling widow Mary Bassett is trying to support three children, but money is so tight that they can’t even afford a Thanksgiving turkey. An unexpected visit from her estranged — and moneyed — mother  means Mary can prepare a proper holiday meal. However, it will take more than a feast to heal this family’s emotional wounds.
