Sideways: Memoir of a Misfit is the story of Japanese American girl, who was born in an Idaho concentration camp during World War II. The first chapter of Sideways was nominated for the Pushcart Prize and published in the spring 2014 issue of The New Orphic Review. Diana Morita Cole is the recipient of a grant from the Columbia Basin Trust and the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance. Her reading will be followed by a screening of the documentary, Hidden Internment, the story of Art Shibayama, who was kidnapped from Peru, smuggled into the United States, and imprisoned in Crystal City, Texas in 1944. An update regarding the public hearing in March of Shibayama's case before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights will be offered. 

The program concludes with dramatic readings from Diana Morita Cole's new collection of stories regarding her family's dispersal from Hood River, Oregon and imprisonment in the Tule Lake and Minidoka concentration camps.
