San Francisco: Talk + Signing with Pamela S. Turner

  • Kinokuniya San Francisco 1581 Webster St., San Francsico CA 94115 USA (map)

About the Event
Author Pamela S. Turner will talk about Yoshitsune and show a replica Heian-era Kabuto warrior helmet during the event. You can try it on and get a taste for what it must have been like for twelfth-century warriors like Yoshitsune.

About the Samurai Rising
Minamoto Yoshitsune should not have been a samurai. But his story is legend in this real-life saga. This epic tale of warriors and bravery, rebellion and revenge, reads like a novel, but is the true story of the greatest samurai in Japanese history.
