The presenter was ten when she was “relocated” with her parents and brother from her Los Angeles home to the Amache Relocation Center in Colorado after a half year at the Santa Anita Assembly Center. Ms. Havey will share a power-point presentation of her watercolors depicting her war-time experiences at these camps and read some corresponding excerpts from her work-in-progress, a creative autobiography funded in part by the Utah Arts Council and the Center for Documentary Arts of Salt Lake City.
