Co-presented with the WASHINGTON CENTER FOR THE BOOK and the BEACON HILL BRANCH, SEATTLE PUBLIC LIBRARY. We're pleased to participate for a second time in a talk/signing by area historian Mary Woodward, author of In Defense of Our Neighbors (Fenwick Publishing). Mary Woodward's parents, Walt and Milly Woodward, editors of the Bainbridge Review, publicly protested the World War II incarceration of 227 Bainbridge Island residents of Japanese descent (the first of over 110,000 that would be incarcerated in the U.S.), and helped the separated community remain in contact with people at home. This is the story that inspired the novel Snow Falling on Cedars. Ms. Woodward's book, which features many photographs and mementoes of Bainbridge, past and present, was produced with cooperation and funding from the Bainbridge Island Japanese American community. Free admission is on a first-come, first-serve basis (no tickets). The Beacon Hill branch is located at 2821 Beacon Hill S. For more information, please call (206) 389-7676, or see www.spl.org.
