Karaoke Murakami: A Midnight Release Party!
August 11, 9 pm to 1am
Every once in a while there’s a reason for a bookstore to stay up late. We’re opening our doors past 9 o’clock to fete the midnight release of Haruki Murikami’s latest novel Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage. Already a bestseller in Japan, Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki tells the story of a lonely train designer who is struggling to overcome the trauma of losing his high school friends years earlier without explanation. He decides to take a pilgrimage to find his former friends and get their explanations once and for all. Community Bookstore is taking pre-orders for the book and we’re thrilled to announce we have a small number of extra-special copies of Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki that will be raffled off to attendees at midnight (you must be present to win). Join us to celebrate a favorite author with beer, Japanese snacks, and karaoke!
