Book Discussion – “Drive My Car” – January 12 (Wed) @7pm EST

Let’s read and discuss the Haruki Murakami’s short story “Drive My Car,” found within the book “Men Without Women”!

(Non-JET Program Alumni, including friends, family, and Japan enthusiasts – even those located outside of Ottawa- are encouraged to join!!)

This short story was the basis of the 2021 film “Drive my Car,” directed by Ryusuke Hamaguchi, and selected to compete for the Palme d’Or at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival where it won three awards including Best Screenplay. It was also selected as the Japanese entry for the Best International Feature Film at the 94th Academy Awards.
