Join us at The Community Library’s Regional History Museum for the opening of “Righting a Wrong: Japanese Americans and World War II.”

During the reception, we’ll also launch The Community Library’s 2020 WINTER READ: “Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet.” We’ll be giving away copies of the novel and sharing information about upcoming programs focusing on the Minidoka National Historic Site in Idaho, which is a setting of the novel.

The “Righting a Wrong” poster exhibit is on display at the Regional History Museum from January 31, 2020 through March 21, 2020, courtesy of the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) program.

The WINTER READ will include distribution of free copies of the book, a presentation by author Jamie Ford on March 12, history exhibits at the Library and the Regional History Museum, and free discussion groups and educational programs throughout February and March focusing on the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II, in Idaho and throughout the country.

The 2020 Winter Read has been generously sponsored by the Spur Community Foundation and Carlyn Ring.
