Book signing and reading by Dr. Priscilla Wegars
Imprisoned in Paradise: Japanese Internee Road Workers at the World War II Kooskia Internment Camp
Free and open to the public

In conjunction with the exhibit Taken: FBI , Oregon Nikkei Endowment presents this book talk with Dr. Wegars. Imprisoned in Paradise describes a unique, virtually forgotten, World War II detention and road building facility that was located on the remote, wild, and scenic Lochsa River in north central Idaho. Between mid-1943 and mid-1945 the Kooskia camp held an all-male contingent of some 265 so-called "enemy aliens" of Japanese ancestry.

Book signing and reading held at 5pm at the Northwest Evaluation Association building at 121 NW Everett Street in Portland. Free and open to the public.

This program was made possible in part by a grant from Oregon Humanities, a statewide nonprofit organization and an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
