Award winning author Beverly Patt will read from this moving and powerful fictional scrapbook which features a friendship that even war could not tear apart.

In April of 1942, 14-year-old Louise Krueger starts a scrapbook when her best friend, Dottie Masuoka, must move to a concentration camp for Japanese Americans in Washington state. The elaborate scrapbook design includes historical photographs and recreated period objects from Louise’s life "on the home front" and Dottie’s letters and drawings from the concentration camp.

There will be a book signing after the program.
