Join Elliott Bay Book Company and Densho for a book event with Frank Abe as he discusses his latest book, the co-edited anthology, The Literature of Japanese American Incarceration, with Karen Maeda Allman.

The Literature of Japanese American Incarceration presents a new vision that recovers and reframes the literature produced by the people targeted by the actions of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Congress to deny Americans of Japanese ancestry any individual hearings or other due process after the Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor. From nearly seventy selections of fiction, poetry, essays, memoirs, and letters emerges a shared story of the struggle to retain personal integrity in the face of increasing dehumanization – all anchored by the key government documents that incite the action.
