FDL Book Salon: Strawberry Days

140396792X-01-_AA240_SCLZZZZZZZ_.jpg

Coming up this Sunday on the FDL Book Salon we’re going to be discussing the brilliant David Neiwert’s Strawberry Days, his story of the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II set against a backdrop Bellevue, Washington back when it was a farming community of 2000 people. David’s analysis of the greed, fear and racism that lead to the imprisonment of American citizens is both beautifully written and fascinating.  

David is a contributor to FDL and he has done incredible work at his own blog, Orcinus, exploring among other things the growth of the Minutemen and the White Supremacist movement and their philosophical kinship with mainstream right wing thought.  It makes the wingnuts crazy, so please show up and support David who will be here the following Sunday, August 6, to hang out and chat with us.  Which is always a delight.
