Dave Niewert Speaking in Seattle Tonight

Author and reknown blog writer Dave Niewert will be speaking about his book, Strawberry Days: How Internment Destroyed a Japanese American Community tonight at the Wing Luke Asian Museum, in Seattle’s International District.  He will also be showing slides that he collected as part of his research.  He says on his blog, Orcinus, that he hopes the event will be attended by many of the folks who participated in making it.

From a review of the book at the Daily Yomiuri - Japan's largest English-language newspaper- comes this overview:

Strawberry Days is really three books in one: A detailed historical chronicle of the whos, whats, wheres, whens and hows of the internment and the events leading up to it; a series of personal anecdotes and emotional reminiscences from internees and those who knew them; and an insightful, well-reasoned analysis of why the internment happened and what its ramifications are.

The event is from 5:00 – 7:00 PM this evening, free, donations accepted.  The Wing Luke Museum is at 407 7th Avenue South, at the corner of Jackson.
