Join us for a multigenerational virtual book discussion with Shirley Ann Higuchi, JD, author of “Setsuko’s Secret: Heart Mountain and the Legacy of the Japanese American Incarceration,” and Salt Lake City community leaders Dr. Jeanette Misaka and Floyd Mori, who are featured in the book. They will discuss the book, the history of Japanese Americans in Salt Lake City, and the relevance today.
Judge Raymond Uno, who is a key character and friend of the late Setsuko Saito, will make opening remarks. Ray Locker, editorial consultant for the Heart Mountain Wyoming Foundation, will moderate the conversation. JACL co-president Trey Imamura will provide next-generation reflections.
