The Works of Joy Kogawa

By the end of author and poet Joy Kogawa’s remarkable four-day visit to our area, we had sold out of her most recent book – Gently to Nagasaki, but thanks to Vancouver’s Historic Joy Kogawa House we were able to get our hands on more copies of that powerful work as well as six more titles by or about her. From the classic semi-autobiographical novel Obasan, her first published work set partially in Slocan City, and the sequel Emily Kato, to her two children’s books Naomi’s Tree and Naomi’s Road, if you didn’t get enough of Joy Kogawa we have got you covered!
