STAYCATION IN JAPAN: JAPANESE FILM FESTIVAL
Mondays, June 7—28, 6:30 pm

”What I did this summer: Went to the Japanese Film Festival at the Grandview Library. Was attacked & robbed by a crazed bandit. (Jerk stole my credit card.) Shared a few drinks with a lovely bar hostess. (She was into me.) Fell in love…with a ghost. And what summer would be complete without a wedding?”

This could be your postcard! See exotic Japan from the comfort of the Grandview Library. Join staffer Chris Boerger for these outstanding films from the Land of the Rising Sun.
