Summary

A touching story of a brother's love and a family's perseverance in a World War II Japanese American internment camp.

Author Biography

Katie Yamasaki is a muralist, author, and teacher. When she was growing up, the World War II internment of 110,000 Japanese and Japanese American citizens was never discussed in school—even though most of Katie's Japanese family was interned.  Inspired by her family's history, she wrote Fish for Jimmy to honor their bravery and the memory of those like them. Based in Brooklyn, New York, she travels widely across the world to paint in and work with diverse communities.  She is passionate about art as dialogue and storytelling.
