    Reading Into History Book Club: A Diamond in the Desert by Kathryn Fitzmaurice

    Speaker: 
    Janice Kambara
    Sun, June 29th, 2014 | 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

    How did kids get through life in a Japanese relocation camp during World War II? Some turned to America's pastime, baseball. But how to you play baseball in a desert? This month's book explores this incredible history through the life of the fictional Tetsu, a twelve year old baseball fanatic living in an Arizona relocation camp with his family. At this month's book wrap, Janice Kambara, associate producer of the PBS documentary Time of Fear, will show us rarely-seen home movies made in the camps that feature baseball games and other family activities.

    Many people know about the Little Rock Nine and the integration of Little Rock, Arkansas schools in 1957. Most do not know about "the lost year" of 1958-59, when the state government chose to close all public high schools in Little Rock rather than accept integration for another year. Join the book club families and author Kristin Levine to discuss this book, which takes place during the lost year, and the complicated history of integration.
