Joan Loveridege-Sanbonmatu gave a wonderul reading from her new book "Impreial Valley Nesei Women: Tranforming Poston" at the Birdhouse Inn.
Afterwards she signed copies of her book for the many who were gathered here. There were forty people in attendance, filling our rooms with warmth and compassion about the struggles of the peoples who were displaced not only from Imperial Valley but from all over the West Coast during the early days of WWII.
Many of Joan and Ike's friends and neighbors attended. We had visitors from New Jersey, New York, massachusetts, as well as Vermont in the audience. Joan's readings were stirring and inpirational.
Thanks, Joan...and Ike!
Who was in the crowd?
