This week we speak with local children’s author and Newberry Honor winner Kirby Larson. Kirby has a new book called DASH. The story takes place in Seattle just after Pearl Harbor and the reader experiences the internment of Japanese Americans through the eyes of 11 year old Mitsi, a Japanese American who finds her whole world turned upside down and can find solace in her relationship with her dog Dash.
In the interview Kirby relates her research and background in writing about such a traumatic episode as well as how she is able to do the subject service while presenting it on a level that young readers can handle.
