Hirasuna is the author of “The Art of Gaman,” a book about the crafts and works of art created by Japanese Americans during their World War II incarceration. Many of the surviving pieces of arts and crafts were part of a traveling exhibition, curated by Hirasuna, that was seen across the U.S. and Japan.
Her latest book, “All That Remains: The Legacy of Japanese American Internment camps” is a continuation of “The Art of Gaman” and more. Since the writing of “The Art of Gaman,” new pieces have been found. “All That Remains” includes these works as well as a poetry and a short history of the Japanese American camp experience.
