Farewell to Manzanar — Monday’s Book Discussion

Spring book discussion season kicks off again this coming Monday, March 15th at 7 pm with Farewell to Manzanar, by Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston and James D. Houston. Kim Stanley of McPherson College will lead the discussion of this true story about a spirited Japanese-American family’s survival of forced detention during the Second World War.

A handful of books remain at the circulation desk in the library, so there’s one waiting for you. It’s a quick and entertaining read, so you still have time before Monday’s discussion.

Other book discussions to follow, all sponsored by the Kansas Humanities Council, include Fences by August Wilson on March 29th, The Tortilla Curtain by T.C. Boyle on April 12th, and The Wire-Cutters by Mollie E. Moore Davis on April 26th.

Drop by the library to learn more about these and other book discussions, and join us this coming Monday night.
