West Linn Historical Society Presents: A Virtual Author Talk: Waka T. Brown
On May 16th West Linn Historical Society is hosting a free Virtual Author Talk with West Linn’s very own Waka T. Brown. Join Waka as she discusses her new memoir WHILE I WAS AWAY. This middle grade memoir follows Waka’s journey as a Japanese American who was sent to live in Japan with a grandmother she barely knew and attend public school because her parents feared she was losing her culture (HarperCollins / Quill Tree, January 2021). Brown will be interviewed by West Linn Historical Society member Dede Montgomery for this look at the process of creating her book and some of the stories of its origin.
