Comments

In a new Blue Review, Alessandro Meregaglia of Boise State University's Albertsons Library tells the story of Toshio Mori. Mori endured internment camps and overcame discrimination to become the first Japanese American to publish a book of fiction. His book "Yokohama, California" was published by Idaho's The Caxton Printers and included an introduction by William Saroyan, winner of a Pulitzer Prize and an Academy Award. Fascinating read!
In a new Blue Review, Boise State University's Mel Fillmore and Lane Gillespie look at the findings from Idaho's first Missing and Murdered Indigenous Persons report.
