A unique opportunity to hear about a family's journey through the American Dream, Japanese American incarceration, and beyond.

Naomi will speak about her family history, their connection to Fort Missoula, and the book that emerged from her mother's life.

Books will be available for sale.
Naomi Shibata is a third generation American of Japanese Ancestry (Nikkei), born and raised in California. Her grandfather was among the Japanese immigrants interned at Fort Missoula during World War II.
Bend with the Wind - The Life, Family, and Writings of Grace Eto Shibata is the story of two families' pursuit of the American Dream. This 20th century narrative highlights Grace's family's struggle to achieve business ownership and tracks the growth of modest, but stable, Japanese communities. It describes how an entire racial ethnic community, most of whose members were American citizens, were disenfranchised during World War II.
It discusses Grace's father's internment by the Department of Justice, the family's incarceration, exile, service in the United States Armed Forces, postwar resettlement, and speaks of Grace's life as wife, mother, businesswoman, author, and activist.
This event is free to the public and will include light appetizers and refreshments.
