DIVERSITY COMMON READER PROJECT

"This year's book selection is a brand-new nonfiction graphic novel that tells the story of the incarceration of Japanese Americans during WWII, through the lives of three historical figures who experienced it firsthand--and resisted it. The topic is timely, given the upcoming 80th anniversary of Executive Order 9066 (which authorized the camps), the current rise in anti-Asian hate crimes, and ongoing debates about immigration, citizenship, and policies of detention and family separation. Frank Abe and Tamiko Nimura's book is applicable to a lot of different courses and accessible to a wide range of readers."
