Reading, Signing and Discussion
Authors:
On the evening of Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, join us for a reading and discussion with authors Caren Stelson and Ellie Roscher. Stelson’s Sachiko tells the story of a Nagasaki Bomb survivor. Roscher’s Play Like a Girl tells how one slum school is educating girls in extreme poverty. They will address their experiences researching and writing about strong young women whose stories tend to be silenced. Whose stories make it into the dominant cultural narrative? Why is it important to hear the voices of the most vulnerable?
