Join Nelson author, Diana Morita Cole as she presents excerpts from her award-winning book, Sideways.
In this presentation, Cole will depict Nikkei internment through her own experience as well as the experience of Canadian poets, Joy Kogawa and Roy Kiyooka. Cole will also present a screening of Hidden Internment, a short documentary that exposes the kidnapping, smuggling, and imprisonment of Japanese Latin Americans during World War II. Finally, this multi-media presentation will include a display of paintings by Andrew Fitz-Earle, a former Nelson artist whose great grandfather perished as a prisoner in the New Denver internment camp during World War II. Don't miss this opportunity to deepen your understanding and analysis of this important part of our history as a means to build paths to peace.
