The BIG event grows, and grows and grows...

The author of Farewell to Manzanar joins us in one week and that's just the beginning. For the CA Reads - Searching for Democracy grant, Monrovia Library is hosting an entire series of great events. Following Jeanne Wakatskui Houston's appearance, we'll be showing three films: Farewell to Manzanar, Unfinished Business, and Pilgrimage. All the films address the enforced incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II, taking vastly different stances on the issue. Traci Kato-Kiriyama returns for a writing workshop based on the notion of searching for democracy, and DJPhatrick returns for podcasting with a beat. It's an exciting line-up so stay tuned for dates and times for all these events.A hint: it's going to be a jam-packed May and June.
