I’ve made a list of questions for use by book clubs or classes to discuss The Red Kimono, and today, I’m beginning a new weekly blog series where I’ll post one question for discussion by anyone who has read the book.
At the end of the series, I’ll open the discussion for you to post other questions you may have about the book. Who knows…maybe I’ll add your question to my list!
Please feel free to comment and discuss your thoughts with us. Positive or negative, I’d like to know!
Each week, I’ll pick a winner from the contributors and will mail a copy of my book of essays, Doll in the Red Kimono. It makes a good reading companion for The Red Kimono!
Here’s this week’s question:
The Red Kimono gives readers an intimate view of how prejudice and racism affects the lives of three young Americans during World War II. What did you learn about this era that you didn’t already know?
