Making Home from War, edited by Brian Komei Dempster is the long-awaited sequel to the award-winning From Our Side of the Fence. Written by 13 Japanese American elders who gathered regularly at the Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California, it is a collection of stories about their exodus from concentration camps into a world that in a few short years had drastically changed. 

My Dog Teny written by Yoshito Wayne Osaki and illustrated by Felicia Hoshino is a new children’s book based on the true story of a boy and the dog he left behind during evacuation. The story was first published in the anthology, From Our Side of the Fence.
