Emperor Divine smallBROOKDALE READ

JOIN CHHANGE AND THE BROOKDALE COMMUNITY THIS FALL

We will share a common intellectual experience as we read the novel When the Emperor Was Divine, by Julie Otsuka. The book follows one Japanese American family's experience when they were forced to live in an internment camp during World War II. Programs will be held throughout the semester, centered on the novel’s themes of racism, prejudice, and the dangers of stereotyping. READ MORE
