Enter the mysterious realm of kaibyō—the supernatural cats of Japan—with author and folklorist Zack Davisson.

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 fans of mythology alike won’t want to miss this in-depth exploration.
