FORA.tv Speaker - John Hamamura
John Hamamura: was born in the final year of World War II. His motherâ€™s family was interned at Rohwer in southern Arkansas; his fatherâ€™s family was from Hiroshima. Hamamura lived and went to school near Tokyo, and spent summer vacations at his grandmotherâ€™s house. It was not until many years later that he learned the significance of its location, two and half miles from Ground Zero. Hamamuraâ€™s debut novel, Color of the Sea, grew out of an exploration of his family history.
