Mandate Press, 1077 South Main Street, Salt Lake City
Mejia has always been fascinated with Japan, ever since he was a child. Growing up in Sacramento, CA, many of his childhood friends happened to be second- and third-generation Japanese, Chinese and Korean. He was interested in the artifacts in their homes; and became a fan of many Japanese films and authors. “My interest was in Japan’s strangeness and seeming exoticism, probably not all that different from the interest of Americans in the mid-19th c., when Japan had been mostly closed off to the West by its military government,” Mejia explained. Much of “TOKYO” is focused on Tuskiji, the Tokyo Central Wholesale Market, the largest fish market in the world, which distributes more than 1500 tons of seafood, shipped from all over the world, to restaurants, supermarkets, and neighborhood stores every day—just to Tokyo and its suburbs.
Mejia will be hosting a book launch party, with a reading and signing on Thursday, April 12, 2018 at the Mandate Press (1077 South Main St., Salt Lake City, UT, 84111) at 7:30 p.m.
