The Japan Society of Fairfield County annual meeting will be held Sunday, November 19 at Bush Holley House. Prof. Daniel Botsman of Yale will be the speaker at our annual meeting. Professor Botsman spent his formative years in Brisbane, Australia. After an extended visit to Osaka as a high school student the study of Japanese history and society quickly became a guiding intellectual passion. He studied at the Australian National University in Canberra, Merton College, Oxford, and Princeton. He had academic appointments at Hokkaido University, Harvard, and the U. of North Carolina at Chapel Hill before joining the Yale faculty in 2010. Wagyu beef will be the topic of his talk.

The meeting will include a potluck lunch, annual reports, election of officers and directors, and a raffle (details will be sent later). Please RSVP by November 9 with your name(s) and what you will be bringing to the potluck, to Nancy Beck at
vnlbeck@earthlink.net or 203-431-0697. You are invited to bring guests.
