1:00p.m. - 4:00p.m.

Japanese American Museum of San Jose

San Jose, California, 95112
United States

The workshop is designed as a catalyst to explore Nisei stories through writing. In particular, we will focus on the Nisei camp experience -- both the wartime incarceration and post-war resettlement. We invite Nisei to come on their own or to bring a son, daughter, grandchild, or friend to share in the process.  We invite Sansei to help write down and remember our Nisei family stories. We invite you be a part of an on-line writing collective for the posting and sharing of Nisei Stories.

The workshop is a continuing thread of Nisei writing workshops lead by Brian Komei Dempster that has resulted in two publications, Making Home from War: Stories of Japanese American Exile and Resettlement (Heyday, 2011) and From Our Side of the Fence: Growing Up in America's Concentration Camps (Kearny Street Workshop, 2001). "Collecting Nisei Stories" receives funding support from the California State Library - Civil Liberties Public Education Program, which allows the workshops to be offered free of charge.

We look forward to having you join us. Please reserve a space by March 11 by contacting Jill Shiraki by phone (510) 277-2164 or email: jshiraki@sbcglobal.net. Once your reservation is confirmed, more details will be sent to you.

Space is limited.
