Novel Activism with Sarah Stonich and Ashley Shelby

Sarah Stonich believes stories can change the world. By subtly weaving cultural, environmental and political issues into fiction, writers can engage readers to relate to characters and communities directly affected by current (and looming) events. This is an interactive discussion, so attendees are encouraged to share and engage. Have you read a book that changed the way you look at something? Whether it’s the troubles of a tourist economy or the weak legal system, novels bring complicated social issues to life, reach across cultural divides and can shift readers’ perceptions.

On Liberty's Wings - Diane Dettmann

The end of World War II signals a new beginning for America, but for twenty-two-year-old Yasu Nakahara and her family, harsh prejudices remain. Now married and leading a new life, Yasu faces barriers almost as unyielding as the years she and her family spent imprisoned in the Japanese internment camp in California during the war. Motivated by flashbacks of armed military guards and barbwire fences, Yasu strives to build a new life.

The Shadows in My Heart - Mary Havens

Big families cultivate chaos. Mary Havens knows this all too well. One of twelve children, she grew up on a picturesque Wisconsin dairy farm. Holidays, graduations, marriages, and newborns filled the farmhouse with the light of laughter and hugs. But for Mary, the unspoken eclipsed that light. Unresolved grief, abuse, religious dogma, and secrets left her in the shadows, lost and alone. Her profound story is one of determination, survival, and the ability to rise above the fray.
