What We’ll Do

What's sometimes charming, sometimes gruesome, but always interesting? The supernatural cats of Japan. Join author and folklorist Zack Davisson for a live chat about the spooky felines. He'll illuminate the mysterious realm of kaibyō (supernatural cats) with dozens of ukiyo-e prints from his namesake book, Kaibyō. Cat lovers and Japanophiles alike won't want to miss this in-depth exploration.
