Join us on Wednesday evening for a look at the history and experiences of Japanese Americans in Hawaii and Washington State. We'll be hearing from Mary Matsuda Gruenewald, reading from her book Looking Like the Enemy, a memoir of growing up on Vashon Island and being sent with her family to internment camps. We'll also be watching the film Great Grandfather's Drum, featuring taiko drummers in Hawaii. Join us for a discussion with the filmmakers, Japanese snacks donated by Central Market, and buy the book or DVD if you'd like to learn more. This event will be held from 7-9 pm in the Community Hall of the Brick Building at the Phinney Neighborhood Center. FREE!
