About this Event
Born and raised in Tokyo, Katherine Tamiko Arguile is an Anglo-Japanese author and arts journalist living in Adelaide, where she runs a small coffee business with her partner, which she juggles alongside her arts journalism and writing career.

Beautiful and mysterious, THE THINGS SHE OWNED explores the complexity of lives lived between cultures, the weight of cross-generational trauma, and a mother and daughter on a tortuous path to forgiveness.

Years after the death of her cruel and complicated mother, Erika's house is still full of the things Michiko left behind: an onigiri basket, a Wedgewood tea set, a knotted ring from Okinawa. Slowly the things Michiko owned reveal stories of Michiko's youth amid the upheaval of Tokyo during and after the war. As the two women's stories progress and entwine, Erika is drawn to the island of Okinawa, the homeland of her grandmother. It's a place of magic and mysticism where the secrets of Erika's own past are waiting to be revealed.
