This Friday, April 28 authors Laura Atkins and Stan Yogi will be visiting our 4th and 5th graders to talk about their new book Fred Korematsu Speaks Up. Their book tells the story of Oakland native Fred Korematsu’s life and fight against the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II .

If you’re interested in buying a copy of the book, you can get it in person or online from local bookstore Mrs. Dalloways who helped us arrange the visit. If you order online, use the coupon code FredCH for a 20% discount, click “I will pick up in store”, and enter your student’s name in the comments. You won’t actually have to pick the book up, they’ll be delivered to school on Friday. We’ll also have a limited number of copies available for $16 on Friday.

For more information about Mr. Korematsu, read the book or visit the Korematsu Institute website.
