No-No Boy by John Okada

Following the pandemic-related cancellation of the annual series of events at historic sites of Japanese American incarceration, Japanese American Memorial Pilgrimages organized Tadaima! A Virtual Community Pilgrimage, a landmark ten-week series of online events for an international audience. On July 10, 2020, AES’s Vince Schleitwiler joined biographer and filmmaker Frank Abe for a “book club” discussion of the life and work of UW alum John Okada, author of the legendary novel No-No Boy. Video of the event is here.
