On its first annual Museum Store Sunday on Nov. 26, the Japanese American National Museum will welcome noted children’s book author Allen Say for the launch of his new book, “Silent Days, Silent Dreams.”

It is an imagined look at the childhood of James Castle, who was born deaf, mute, autistic, and probably dyslexic. Despite countless obstacles and challenges, Castle persevered in creating his art. Today, his works are featured in major exhibitions and collected by museums all over the world.

Say will be signing copies of “Silent Days, Silent Dreams” which will be available for sale at the JANM Store. Museum members will receive a 20 percent discount.
