Eagle Harbor Books hosts poetry event in Winslow
Authors Brian Komei Dempster (“Topaz”) and Janet Norman Knox (“Eastlake Cleaners When Quality and Price Count”) will help host a poetry event at Eagle Harbor Book Company at 3 p.m. Sunday, June 1.
Bainbridge Island’s notorious distinction as the first location from which Japanese American families were taken to “relocation” camps during World War II puts some historical perspective on the evening. Dempster’s debut poetry collection, “Topaz,” takes its title from the prison camp where his maternal family was incarcerated.
Knox returns to the bookstore to read from “Eastlake Cleaners,” and will also read from her current manuscript, “Gravity Dog.”
This special event is co-sponsored with the Bainbridge Island Historical Museum, Bainbridge Island Japanese American Community, and the Bainbridge Island Japanese American Exclusion Memorial Association.
Eagle Harbor Books is at 157 Winslow Way East.
