During the Second World War, the Canadian government forced Japanese Canadians out of their homes and into internment camps. This year, three books from Canadian authors Mark Sakamoto (Shizue’s Path), Sara Truuvert (Mira and Baku) and Lara Jean Okihiro (Obaasan’s Boots) spotlight this period in history. In this evening event designed for adults and educators, moderator Henry Tsang explores the importance of sharing difficult topics with young people in conversation with all three authors.
