Join us this April for two titles by the same author. We will be reading "Tallgrass" & also "Red Berries, White Clouds and Blue Skies", both by Sandra Dallas. Each book discusses the relocation of the Japanese during WWII.
Tallgrass is a story told from the viewpoint of thirteen year old Rennie Stroud. ~ "This is her town as Rennie Stroud has never seen it before. She has just turned thirteen and, until this time, life has pretty much been what her father told her it should be: predictable and fair. But now the winds of change are coming and, with them, a shift in her perspective. And Rennie will discover secrets that can destroy even the most sacred things. Part thriller, part historical novel, Tallgrass is a riveting exploration of the darkest---and best---parts of the human heart." ~ Amazon
Red Berries, White Clouds, Blue Sky is told from the viewpoint of twelve year old Tomi Itano. "It's 1942: Tomi Itano, 12, is a second-generation Japanese American who lives in California with her family on their strawberry farm. Although her parents came from Japan and her grandparents still live there, Tomi considers herself an American. She doesn't speak Japanese and has never been to Japan. But after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, things change" ~ AmazonAll are welcome to our book group. We read a variety of books, non-fiction, fiction, light, heavy.
