Join author, George Takei, and illustrator, Michelle Lee, for a reading, conversation, and signing of their new children’s book, My Lost Freedom, a moving and true story about growing up in Japanese American concentration camps during World War II.



In My Lost Freedom, George Takei looks back at his own memories of the Santa Anita racetrack, Rohwer concentration camp, and Tule Lake Segregation Center to help children today understand what it feels like to be treated as an enemy in your own country. Featuring powerful watercolor paintings, this book tells the story of a family’s courage, a young boy’s resilience, and the importance of staying true to yourself in the face of injustice.

My Lost Freedom will be available for purchase at the JANM Store in April.
