4:30 pm - 5:30 pm    Gasa Gasa Girl Goes to Camp:The Watercolors and Words of Lily Yuriko Nakai Havey

Arts & Entertainment / Caine College of the Arts

In this newly published memoir, Lily Havey combines storytelling, watercolor, and personal photographs to recount her youth in two Japanese American prison camps during World War II. Through short vignettes---snapshots of people, recreated scenes and events she shares her memories of becoming a teenager inside these camps. Vintage photographs reveal the historical, cultural, and familial contexts of that growth and of the Nakai family's dislocation. They portray the recollected lives of her mother and father in Japan and then America, where they began their arranged marriage and had two children.
