Seattle author Daniel James Brown autographed copies of his latest book, Facing the Mountain, for Elliot Bay Book Company in Seattle in preparation for his launch event with the bookstore and nonprofit Denshō on May 11.
No one puts heart into history quite like Brown. Fans of The Boys in the Boat will appreciate how he again focuses on a few young men to tell a riveting tale of determination. From the shores of Hawai’i to the front lines in Europe, in incarceration camps and courtrooms on the homefront, these Japanese Americans demonstrated heroism and patriotism that will enlighten and inspire.
