Celebrating my (and my character’s) Japan experience

Sugoi!* Manga Touch is officially launched! About forty people showed up at Burnaby’s Nikkei Heritage Centre to eat Japanese snacks, listen to me read from the book and talk about my experience of manga and Japan, as well as check out the exhibition of manga art at the centre’s gallery space.

*Sugoi is Japanese for “great” or “cool.”
