The next meeting of the Japanese American Museum of San Jose's (JAMsj) book club will discuss Karen Riley's book, Schools Behind Barbed Wire . This book tells the story of the boys and girls who had to grow up in the Crystal City internment camp and spent the WWII years attending one of its three schools. Drawn from personal interviews and multiple, primary source materials, this is the first book to recount the experiences of Japanese American internee school children.

 
The book club meets at 1:00 p.m. the first Saturday of every other month at JAMsj. Meetings are open to the general public, and books are available for purchase at the museum store. Questions? Contact Aggie Idemoto at (408) 294-3138 or aggie@jamsj.org.


Cost: Free with admission to the museum (nonmembers, $5; students and seniors over age 65, $3; JAMsj members and children under 12, free).
RSVP: No RSVP required.
