George Takei's incredible graphic memoir continues to resonate with readers of all ages!
• Watch George Takei introduce the book and read a powerful scene out loud, especially for young people — complete with animated visuals — in "Story Time with Uncle George"! This ten-minute video can be a perennial resource for teachers, parents, and families, especially while schools are closed due to COVID. A Teacher's Guide is also available.
• The Expanded Hardcover Edition, complete with a 16-page bonus section of behind-the-scenes images and commentary, has just been released! Check your favorite store and look for Harmony Becker's recolored cover art with its hauntingly beautiful sunset sky.
• On Friday, the Asian/Pacific American Librarians Association held their award ceremony, in which They Called Us Enemy received the Young Adult Literature award. The virtual program, which included an acceptance speech from George Takei, was followed by a live conversation between APALA committee members and authors, including Justin, Steven, and Harmony talking about their creative process with George.
• And we were honored a few weeks ago to see They Called Us Enemy win the 2020 Eisner Award for Best Reality-Based Work. You can read the team's acceptance statement here!
