On August 18 at 10:30 a.m., the library will host a very special presentation by Mr. Eddie Ezaki. If you are aware of the classic book about the Japanese Internment during WWII, then Mr. Ezaki’s story will surely resonant with you. Eddie Ezaki was 9 years old when he and his family were interned in a hastily built camp in Arizona.. They were held there from shortly after Dec. 7, 1941 to after WWII. In one of the many ironies of World War II thousands of young men (Japanese Americans) from the camps volunteered to join combat infantry units and ended up wearing the same uniforms as the camp guards who kept their parents and siblings imprisoned.
