Although born to a Chinese mother from Hong Kong and a Japanese father from Hawaii, author Gail Tsukiyama has said in many ways she's as "American as apple pie."
She acknowledges that writing has helped her explore her heritage; her books, which include A Hundred Flowers, The Street of a Thousand Blossoms, The Samurai's Garden and Women of the Silk, help readers explore themes of family, courage and perseverance.
A presentation by Gail Tsukiyama is the next event in the library's Hear & Now series.
