All members are invited to meet authors Naomi Hirahara and Kathleen Burkinshaw for a virtual Members Only Meet-and-Greet before our authors talk at 12 p.m. (PDT).

Naomi Hirahara is an Edgar Award-winning mystery writer, social historian, and a former editor of The Rafu Shimpo. Kathleen Burkinshaw is a Japanese American author of The Last Cherry Blossom, a United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs Resource for Teachers & Students. Both are children of hibakusha, survivors of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.

Join them for an exclusive conversation on how their family histories impact their writing and their work as both novelists and advocates.
