Join author Gene Oishi, his daughter  Eve Oishi, and scholar Koji Lau-Ozawa to celebrate Oishi’s newly revised 1988 work, In Search of Hiroshi—a powerful memoir about his lifelong struggle to claim both his Japanese and American identities in the aftermath of World War II.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

“Can one wreak vengeance against oneself?”

This anguished question hangs over Gene Oishi’s powerful memoir about his lifelong struggle to claim both his Japanese and American identities in the aftermath of World War II. From the aftermath of Executive Order 9066 through his career in journalism and politics, Oishi wrestles with his Japanese heritage and questions whether he will truly be accepted as American. In Search of Hiroshi, originally published in 1988 and long unavailable, is revised to include new essays and a conversation between Oishi and his daughter.
