100 Larkin St.

Join us when author Tom Graves discusses his book Twice Heroes: America's Nisei Veterans of WWII and Korea. Twice Heroes features portraits of Nisei veterans and explores the experiences of Japanese American veterans before, during and after World War II.  At first denigrated and mistrusted, the Nisei veterans, now in their 80s and 90s, eventually earned the praise of the nation and ultimately, the Congressional Gold Medal. A book sale by Readers Books follows the event.
