A classically beautiful novel by Arthur Golden was transformed into film the year 2006. Sometimes we need to take a break from our crazy Midwestern lives and seek knowledge of outside lands. This historical work is sure to help one step inside the mind a young girl sold off to become a geisha. From learning to dance, wear makeup, and be sold off to wealthy men is a sort of slavery that doesn’t allow a woman to establish independence or a voice. I challenge you to read and watch the DVD to at least learn a little about the culture that once was in another time and land.
