 The selected book, An American Son: The Story of George Aratani, Founder of Mikasa and Kenwood by Naomi Hirahara is available in the JAMsj Store. It is not available in the San Jose Public Library. This book is a natural follow-up to an earlier Book Club selection, Vanished: Lompoc's Japanese , which described Setsuo (George's father) as a successful farmer in the Santa Maria and Guadalupe areas. George learned business practices from his father and eventually became a powerful entrepreneur. George is a friend a strong supporter of JAMsj.
