Join us for an afternoon with author Kiyo Sato, 2008 William Saryon award winner for non-fiction and 2008 NCPA's overall book. Ms. Sato will discuss her memoir “Kiyo's Story: A Japanese-American Family's Quest for the American Dream” which chronicles the tribulations her family endured in America through the Great Depression and WWII.
“It is a magnificent memoir, fully worthy of being compared to Farewell to Manzanar. I cannot praise its pointillist realism, its Zen-like austerity, highly enough. Exquisite.”
—Kevin Starr, California: A History
