The Worthington International Friendship Association is launching a new program this year…. The WIFA Book Discussion Group. Throughout the year, books with an international or cultural theme will be selected. Participants are encouraged to read the selection prior to the program date and then come to discuss and reflect with other participants. The goal is to expand your knowledge and cultural understanding, and develop connections with new friends.
The book for June is "The Travelling Cat Chronicles" by Hiro Arikawa
An instant international bestseller and indie bestseller, The Travelling Cat Chronicles has charmed readers around the world. With simple yet descriptive prose, this novel gives voice to Nana the cat and his owner, Satoru, as they take to the road on a journey with no other purpose than to visit three of Satoru’s longtime friends. Or so Nana is led to believe… With his crooked tail–a sign of good fortune–and adventurous spirit, Nana is the perfect companion for the man who took him in as a stray. And as they travel in a silver van across Japan, with its ever-changing scenery and seasons, they will learn the true meaning of courage and gratitude, of loyalty and love.
