What I’m Reading: Farewell to Manzanar – 11 in a series – “…sprayed with fine dust.”

August 9th, 2019

This new series is an ongoing collection of quotes from the books I am currently reading. — Douglas


”WE WOKE EARLY, SHIVERING AND COATED with dust that had blown up through the knotholes and in through the slits around the doorway. During the night Mama had unpacked all our clothes and heaped them on our beds for warmth. Now our cubicle looked as if a great laundry bag had exploded and then been sprayed with fine dust.”

From Farwell to Manzanar by by Jeanne Wakatsuki Housto and James D. Houston
