About this event

Anderson’s Bookshops, Left Bank Books, and Boswell Book Company present a virtual event with Daniel James Brown, author of Facing the Mountain: An Inspiring Story of Japanese American Patriots in World War II.

In the days and months after Pearl Harbor, the lives of Japanese Americans across the continent and Hawaii were changed forever. In this unforgettable chronicle of war-time America and the battlefields of Europe, Daniel James Brown portrays the journey of Rudy Tokiwa, Fred Shiosaki, and Kats Miho, who volunteered for the 442nd Regimental Combat Team and were deployed to France, Germany, and Italy, where they were asked to do the near impossible. Whether fighting on battlefields or in courtrooms, these were Americans under unprecedented strain, doing what Americans do best - striving, resisting, pushing back, rising up, standing on principle, laying down their lives, and enduring.

From the starred Publishers Weekly review: "Brown chronicles in this bravura account the experiences of Japanese American soldiers and their families during WWII... The result is an illuminating and spirited portrait of courage under fire."

Daniel James Brown is the author of The Boys in the Boat, The Indifferent Stars Above, and Under a Flaming Sky.
