How to Be An American Housewife crosses continents, cultures, decades, and generations to tell the story of a Japanese woman who marries an American soldier at the end of World War II, her thorny relationship with her American daughter, and the trip to contemporary Japan that changes both of their lives in dramatic and unexpected ways. 

Wingshooters, set in the 1970s, is about racial bigotry in Deerhorn, Wisconsin—a small town that is entirely white until the arrival of nine-year-old Michelle, the daughter of a Japanese mother and a white American father, moves in with her grandparents. Revoyr’s new novel examines the effects of change on a small, isolated town, the strengths and limits of community, and the sometimes conflicting loyalties of family and justice. 

Free with Museum admission. Reservations recommended to or 213.625.0414 at least 48 hours prior.
