The Cracks in the Life of Mike Anami

Join us as we welcome Ted Shigematsu for a presentation of his biographical novel. The story chronicles the life of Mike Anami, a character whose family members endured the same fate as the author’s parents and ancestors: they were among the 120,000 Japanese Americans living on the West Coast who were forcibly removed to inland concentration camps during World War II. Come for the presentation; stay for the discussion.
