This one has been on my shelf for years; I think it should circulate a little.

After Japan attacked Pearl Harbor in 1941, Miné Okubo was one of many Japanese Americans "evacuated" from the West Coast. She used her art as a way to document her experiences at Tanforan and Topaz in this illustrated memoir first published in 1946.

I really enjoyed this illustrated, true account of the author's time in the Japanese internment camps during World War 2. I thought it somewhat funny how she put herself in most of the pictures she drew. It was her story, so I guess that made sense. One thing I didn't understand, is why she didn't want people to visit her. I guess she wasn't lonely and didn't mind being on her own. She seemed like a very practical person.
