Join us for a fasincating talk about the rich cultural history of San Jose Japantown. This regional history discussion will be presented by local author, artist and photographer, Curt Fukuda.

Curt Fukuda is a writer and artist who lives in Mountain View. He grew up in East Side San Jose and remembers riding his bike down King Road when farms flanked the street. Interested in a wide range of subjects, his books include “San Jose Japantown – A Journey” (co-authored with Ralph M. Pearce), “Cuentos de el Día de los Muertos” and “Día de los Muertos – When Two Worlds Meet” (co-authored with Dr. Shawn Haley).  As a professional photographer, technical writer, instructor and exhibiting artist, Curt’s work has been shown internationally. At the end of the 1990s, he participated in the Smithsonian’s “Americanos” project headed by Edward James Olmos.
