Meet Monica Hesse

  • October 1, 2018

The author of The War Outside comes to DC on Thurs., Oct. 4th, at 7PM!

Meet Monica Hesse
In 1944, Japanese-American Haruko and German-American Margot, two lonely young teens, are prisoners of war in a Texas internment camp for families. As the world around them appears to shift, they find solace and friendship in each other. Told from dual perspectives, the novel twists and shifts to make readers question what the word “enemy” actually means. Bestselling author Hesse draws on extensive research and archival records about this little-discussed chapter in American history, when Japanese-Americans and German-Americans were imprisoned together during World War II. Ages 12 and up.

This event is free to attend with no reservation required. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
