Come and meet the author, Jeanette S. Arakawa. She wrote the book: The Litle Exile.

About her book:

Her family and 120,00 others of Japanese ancestry are forcibly relocated to internment camps far from home. Living conditions in the camps are harsh, life after camp is similarly harsh, but in the end, as she and her family make their way back to San Francisco, Marie sees hope for the future.  Told from a child's perpective, The Little Exile deftly conveys Marie's innocence, wonder, fear, and outrage.

Members Free. Students/Seniors $5, adults $8.
