Join us when Chuck Wollenberg reads from his new book, Rebel Lawyer. This book tells the story of Wayne Collins, who worked on key cases pertaining to the World War II incarceration of people of Japanese ancestry. Wollenberg takes us through each case and talks about how Collins came to be the most effective defender of civil rights of the West Coast’s Japanese and Japanese Americans. A book sale follows the event.

Free and open to the public; more info here.
