Please note: The original time of the event has changed; it now runs from 3:00-5:00 p.m.

The Nichi Bei Foundation presents as part of its Author Series, a book talk and signing by Hiroshi Kashiwagi. An accomplished author, playwright, poet and actor, Mr. Kashiwagi also once served as branch manager at the Western Addition Branch Library. In his latest book Starting from Loomis and Other Stories, a memoir in short stories, he reflects upon the moments, people, forces, mysteries, and choices that have made him who he is. Central to this collection are his experiences as a Japanese American during WWII - from his inprisonment at Tule Lake to the resulting lifelong stigma of being labeled a "No-No Boy" after his years of incarceration.

With special guest: Kevin Wildie, adjunct professor at Cosumnes River College in Sacramento, CA and Yuba College in Marysville, CA, and author of "Sacramento's Historic Japantown: Legacy of a Lost Neighborhood"

Books will be available for purchase and signing afterwards.

This program is scheduled to be held in the library courtyard, weather permitting.
