"In the Know" Weekly Newsletter - The International School

Japanese Track Cultural Events - you're invited!

Join Barnes & Noble to welcome author Kristina McMorris for a book release and signing of her new book, The Bridge of Scarlet Leaves. This book launch and signing event also includes a panel discussion featuring two remarkable guests from Oregon Nikkei: a former Japanese American relocation camp resident and a Japanese American WWII veteran recently awarded the Congressional Gold Medal. Kristina was kind enough to name the International School as the beneficiary of a special book fair in conjunction with her book launch.
