Join author Lori Tsugawa Whaley for a reading and signing of her book, “The Courage of a Samurai,” at 7:00 pm on Thursday, October 19th, at the Mill Creek University Book Store.
The samurai warriors of ancient Japan lived by a moral and ethical code known as Bushido, the way of the warrior. This code of chivalry sculpted their culture and influenced all aspects of their lives and society.
After the Japanese earthquake and tsunami of March 2011, the world witnessed the characteristics of Bushido, including courage, integrity, benevolence, respect, honesty, honor, and loyalty.
Lori Tsugawa Whaley's “The Courage of a Samurai” presents these principles as a guide for navigating the challenges we all face with examples of individuals who exemplify their meaning in today's world.
Lori Tsugawa Whaley is an author, inspirational speaker, and a descendant of the samurai warrior. She graduated with Honors from Portland State University. Whaley, a Baby Boomer, struggled with being 'different,' and channeled her energies into understanding, and embracing her Japanese heritage.
This journey forged a compassion to empower others to reach their God-given potential, and the driving force for her book, "The Courage of a Samurai: Seven Sword-Sharp Principles for Success."
