There is a lot of interest in @GeorgeTakei's memoir in graphic novel format, THEY CALLED US THE ENEMY (mine included/book pre-ordered). In the interest of @ncte's #BuildYourStack initiative, I am sharing Larry Dane Brimner's VOICES FROM THE CAMPS (Franklin Watts 1994). #bookaday
Larry Dane Brimner's work here situated the reader six years after President Reagan's signature upon a national apology to those affected by the relocation of Japanese Americans in the early '40s. The voices invited and included in this book are still important to readers.
And this is not to spark debate around circulation/weeding (I recognize both necessity and the charge), but I bought this discarded book. From Berkeley. It's last checkout only four years after it's publish date. Who knows this book?

For those who were asking to see the slides from my #classroombookaday #BuildYourStack at #NCTE18...a thread (b/c I'm too tired to figure out another way to upload them somewhere right now😂). #nerdybookclub #bookaday

.@noraraleighB: The other day, I was organizing books. I moved RUBY ON THE OUTSIDE. To the shelf behind my desk where I could pick it up when I need. Now, the grown child of an incarcerated parent, I know the immediacy of the emotions that comes of the moment and the day-to-day.
I turn to the recent conversations regarding empathy and how it's expressed. I have come to believe that there is a form of empathy that is as old as story itself. Some might call this bibliotherapy, but I say, "No. This is still one person removed from the hurt offering a book."
The idea of Literary Empathy is that I have gone through a similar (not same) situation or moment or time and I have read into it for me. First. And then, I read some more. Now, I have resources that I can offer to you. We can talk about these together. This is who I am becoming.
