Delphine Hirasuna is the author of "The Art of Gaman," a book about the crafts and works of art created by Japanese Americans during their incarceration in World War II Internment Camps. Most of the featured works were creatively made using found materials at these sites. Many of the surviving pieces of arts and crafts were part of a traveling exhibition that Delphine curated. Her latest book "All That Remains: The Legacy of Japanese American Internment Camps" is a continuation of the "Art of Gaman" and more. Since the writing of the "Art of Gaman" new pieces have been found. "All That Remains" includes these works as well as poetry and a short history of the Japanese American internment experience. Book sale and signing will follow the presentation.
