Book Lust with Nancy Pearl Featuring Daniel James Brown
Nancy Pearl talks with Daniel James Brown, author of the wildly successful "The Boys in the Boat." His new book, "Facing the Mountain - A True Story of Japanese American Heroes in World War II," chronicles four Japanese American families and their sons, telling the story of World War II in a way you've never heard before. He explains how the book grew out of conversations with Tom Ikeda of Densho, the Seattle-based nonprofit that collects oral histories of Japanese Americans incarcerated during World War II. Plus, Brown shares what he's been reading for pleasure after four years immersed in book research.
