United States

Join us for a book reading with author Mira Shimabukuro who will discuss her book, Relocating Authority: Japanese Americans Writing to Redress Mass Incarceration, in conversation with Tom Ikeda of the Densho project.
Relocating, draws upon community archives, visual histories, and Asian American history and theory to reveal the ways writing has served as a critical tool for Japanese American incarcerees and their descendants.
Incarcerees not only used writing to redress the “internment” in the moment but also created pieces of text that enabled and inspired further redress long after the camps had closed.
Mira will be on hand to sign books which will be available for purchase at The Wing's Marketplace.
The book reading is free and open to the public.
