Author and journalist Frank Abe will discuss his new book John Okada: The Life and Rediscovered Work of the Author of No-No Boy. Co-edited by Abe, Greg Robinson and Floyd Cheung, the book is the first full-length examination of John Okada’s development as an artist, placing a meticulously researched biography alongside his unknown writing and new critical essays. It is an essential companion to No-No Boy, John Okada’s only published novel, which centers on a Japanese American who refuses to fight for the country that incarcerated him and his people in World War II.

First published in 1957, No-No Boy was virtually ignored by a public eager to put World War II and the Japanese internment behind them. It was not until the mid-1970s that a new generation of Japanese American writers and scholars recognized the novel's importance and popularized it as one of literature's most powerful testaments to the Asian American experience.

Frank Abe is a journalist and producer/director of the PBS documentary Conscience and the Constitution. He is currently collaborating on a graphic novel dramatizing the resistance to wartime incarceration. You can read his blog posts at Resisters.com.
