How the power of an untold secret can affect how one lives and\, w ith its revelation\, can spark others to tell their own. With a good story \, we can change ourselves\, our country\, our world for the better. Setsu ko's Secret is one of the good stories." -- Tamlyn Tomita</em>\n<em></em>\ n<em>Setsuko&rsquo\;s Secret: Heart Mountain and the Legacy of the Japanes e American Incarceration</em>&nbsp\;by Shirley Ann Higuchi blends personal and political histories into a powerful and inspirational narrative. Join author Shirley Ann Higuchi in a conversation and Q&amp\;A with actress Ta mlyn Tomita\, moderated by filmmaker and news anchor David Ono.\n\nAs chil dren\, Shirley Ann Higuchi and her brothers knew Heart Mountain only as th e place their parents met. As they grew older\, they would come to recogni ze the name as a source of great sadness and shame for the generation of J apanese Americans forced into the hastily built concentration camp during WWII. Only after a serious cancer diagnosis did Shirley&rsquo\;s mother\, Setsuko\, share her vision for a museum at the site of the former camp\, w here she had been donating funds and volunteering in secret for many years . After Setsuko&rsquo\;s death\, Shirley skeptically accepted an invitatio n to visit the site\, a journey that would forever change her life and int roduce her to a part of her mother she never knew.\n\nNavigating the compl icated terrain of the Japanese American experience\, Shirley patched toget her Setsuko&rsquo\;s story and came to understand the forces and generatio nal trauma that shaped her own life. Moving seamlessly between family and communal history\, Setsuko&rsquo\;s Secret offers a clear window into the &ldquo\;camp life&rdquo\; that was rarely revealed to the children of the incarcerated. This volume powerfully insists that we reckon with the pain in our collective American past.\n\nShop the JANM store!\n\n<a href="https ://janmstore.com/products/setsukos-secret" target="_blank">Setsuko&rsquo\; s Secret by Shirley Higuchi</a>\n<a href="https://janmstore.com/products/l egacy-of-heart-mountain-dvd" target="_blank">The Legacy of Heart Mountain produced by David Ono</a>\n<a href="https://janmstore.com/products/legacy- of-heart-mountain-dvd" target="_blank"></a>\n<strong><a href="https://9644 p.blackbaudhosting.com/9644p/tickets?tab=2&amp\;txobjid=0254fdfb-a235-44e9 -b23c-44bf3b07c3bb" target="_blank">RSVP NOW</a></strong> SUMMARY:Sparking Stories: A Conversation with Shirley Ann Higuchi &amp\; Ta mlyn Tomita URL:/en/events/2021/01/09/sparking-stories-a-conversation-with-shirley-ann/ END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
