September Book Club: Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata
September 30, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
A heartwarming and surprising story of 36-year-old Tokyo resident Keiko Furukura. Keiko has never fit in, neither in her family, nor in school, but when at the age of eighteen she begins working at the Hiiromachi branch of “Smile Mart,” she finds peace and purpose in her life. An ironic and sharp-eyed look at contemporary work culture and the pressures to conform, as well as a charming and completely fresh portrait of an unforgettable heroine.
