Joanne Oppenheim reads from her book Dear Miss Breed, a tribute to a remarkable librarian Clara Breed, who befriended the middle-and high-school-aged Japanese Americans of San Diego that were incarcerated in the U.S. internment camps during World War II. The book is a testament to the importance of letters and photos that speak to the personal histories of those who could not speak for themselves.

Audience members are invited to bring in letters, photos and mementos from this period to share with the author and audience.
