The Pine & the Cherry: Japanese Americans in Washington

Tuesday, May 8, 2018

Mayumi Tsutakawa will speak on The Pine and the Cherry: Japanese Americans in Washington on Saturday, May 12, 2018, 2pm at the Lake Forest Park Library, Town Center, 17171 Bothell Way NE, Lake Forest Park, on the lower level by the escalator.

Leading up to WWII, Japanese in Seattle and Eastern Washington thrived and prospered.

Then came Executive Order 9066, forcing 120,000 Japanese and their American-citizen offspring to concentration camps, without due process.

When they returned, most had lost everything. 

Mayumi, whose father was renowned sculptor George Tsutakawa, will reveal her family’s 100-year history against the backdrop of this dramatic American story.
