Talking about OBASAN

Neighbour met neighbour on the evening of 29 March at Whonnock Lake Centre for very successful discussions about the book they all read: Obasan. They also reflected on the fate of Japanese residents of Whonnock and Ruskin in the years of the Second World War.
Jean Davidson and Sue Adair should be proud of their accomplishment of initiating the One Book Whonnock program and making it such a success.
