Daniel James Brown: Facing the Mountain
New York Times Bestselling author Daniel James Brown will virtually to discuss his latest work, Facing the Mountain: A True Story of Japanese American Heroes in World War II. The book chronicles the kaleidoscopic journeys of four Japanese-American families and their sons--Gordon Hirabayashi, Rudy Tokiwa, Fred Shiosaki, and Kats Miho. One demonstrated his courage as a resister. The others volunteered for the 442nd Regimental Combat Team and displayed fierce courage in the mountains and forests of France, Germany, and Italy where they were tasked with doing the near-impossible. The discussion will be moderated by Kristen Hayashi, Director of Collections Management & Access and Curator at Japanese American National Museum. Afterwards there will be a live audience Q&A.
