442 Graphic Novel Talk and Drawing Workshop with Rob Sato


Enjoy a talk between the authors of 442, a graphic novel by Koji Steven Sakai and Phinneas Kiyomura, who, along with artist Rob Sato, will discuss their collaboration process. Following the discussion, we invite you to participate in a drawing workshop for all skill levels; materials will be provided.

442 follows Hiro, a young man incarcerated at the Manzanar concentration camp during World War II who volunteers for the 442nd Regimental Combat Team (RCT) and joins the battle to rescue the “Lost Battalion.” The 442nd RCT was a segregated unit of Japanese Americans who became the most highly decorated military unit for their size and duration of service.
