TIME CHANGE: Book Launch for Hiroshi Kashiwagi
"Starting from Loomis and Other Stories"
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, 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 internment at Tule Lake to the resulting lifelong stigma of being labeled a "No-No Boy" after his years of incarceration.
