Without Nakane's prescient efforts to preserve these stories\, much und erstanding of early immigrant experience in this country would have been l ost. Now\, with its republication\, Nothing Left in My Hands is again avai lable to those interested in the history of California's immigrants and th eir contributions to American culture.\n\nFor more information: mail@jamsj .org SUMMARY:Book Club Discussion: Nothing Left in My Hands URL:/en/events/2012/05/04/book-club-discussion-nothing-left-in-my-hands/ END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
