Join the Rogers Park Branch in celebrating Asian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month as we read and discuss They Called Us Enemy: George Takei's graphic memoir of his time in a World War II internment camp on May 22 (6-7PM) at Rogers Park (6907 N. Clark Street, Chicago IL 60626).

"Takei has spoken publicly about his childhood experiences in internment camps during WWII, and this graphic memoir tells that story again with a compelling blend of nostalgia and outrage. He was very young when he and his family were forced out of their California home and sent to Camp Rohwer in Arkansas, so some of his memories of that time are touched with gentle affection, though that fondness is short-lived. As he grows older and they're relocated to a camp with harsher conditions, it seems less like an adventure and more like the atrocity it truly is."  --Booklist

Books will be available soon at the Rogers Park Branch.
