Don't miss an engaging book panel discussion on Setsuko’s Secret: Heart Mountain and the Legacy of the Japanese American Incarceration. Author Shirley Ann Higuchi, J.D., chair of the Heart Mountain Wyoming Foundation, uncovers her family’s past and embarks on a transformational journey as she learns about the Japanese American incarceration during World War II and what happened to her family and those of other former incarcerees. She will be joined by Darrell Kunitomi and Aura Newlin, who are also descendants of former incarcerees featured in the book. They will discuss the book, the multigenerational effects of trauma and the incarceration’s relevance to contemporary issues of racism and identity in America. Tom Ikeda, Founding Executive Director of Densho based in Seattle, Washington will moderate the discussion.
