Book T.A.L.K. (Talk About Literature in Kansas)

November 8, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Wood Fence between two houses

The final book in the Between Fences series is Farewell to Manzanar, the memoir of Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston. During World War II a community called Manzanar was created in the high mountain desert country of California. Its purpose was to house thousands of Japanese Americans. Among them was the Wakatsuki family, who were ordered to leave their fishing business in Long Beach and take with them only the belongings they could carry. Jeanne, who was seven years old when she arrived at Manzanar in 1942, recalls life in the camp through the eyes of the child she was.

Our discussion leader will be Sara Tucker, retired professor of history from Washburn University.

Copies of the book are available at the library.
