NAOMI HIRAHARA,

Pasadena-based mystery writer Naomi Hirahara will discuss how she created her latest historical novel, Clark and Division, featuring a Japanese American family who has been released to Chicago from Manzanar during World War II. A former editor of The Rafu Shimpo newspaper, she has written and edited several nonfiction books and a dozen of mysteries, including the Mas Arai series.
