Please join us for a Free Author Talk, where Melody M. Miyamoto Walters will appear in the Lihue Library Children’s room, discussing her new book In Love and War, a love story between Yoshiharu Ogata and Naoko Tsukiyama, the author’s grandparents. Narrated via letters they wrote to each other between 1941 to 1943, this book offers a unique view of Hawaii Nisei, and the cultural history of territorial Hawaii during the World War II era.
Copies of In Love and War will be available for sale by the Friends of the Lihue Public Library, and Walters will be available to sign copies.
This event is a partnership between the library and the Hanapepe Soto Zen Temple, who will also offer taiko and bon dance demonstrations.
