Join us for a free and publicly open reading from children's book writer Lauren R. Harris. Lauren will read from both The Plum Neighbor and her newest children's book, A Place for Harvest: The Story of Kenny Higashi. Both books are historical fiction based on true stories for young readers, about what life was like in America following the bombing of Pearl Harbor, including the Japanese internment camps and World War II. Following the reading, Lauren will also give a talk for parents and educators on how and why we should share difficult yet very important historical subject matter with children, focusing on the legacy of the Japanese American soldiers of WWII. This event is sponsored by the Spokane Chapter of the Japanese American Citizen's League. We thank the JACL for their continued support. We also thank Wishing Tree Books for hosting this event. There will be free street parking.
