The group will be discussing They Called Us Enemy by George Takei. You can read a free copy of this book online via Overdrive or Hoopla.  (You will need your Evanston Public Library card to sign up for Hoopla, if you have not done so already.)

In a stunning graphic memoir, Takei revisits his haunting childhood in American concentration camps, as one of over 100,000 Japanese Americans imprisoned by the U.S.government during World War II. Experience the forces that shaped an American icon—and America itself—in this gripping tale of courage, country, loyalty, and love.
