Join author Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston for this very special event as she talks about her experiences in the Japanese internment camp Manzanar. Only 7 when her family was forced to leave their home and relocate in 1942, it took Mrs. Houston nearly 30 years to be able to talk about her ordeal.

This program is part of the Cal Humanities Searching for Democracy series and is sponsored by California Reads, California Center for the Book, Cal Humanities and Friends of the Monrovia Public Library.
