What I’m Reading: Farewell to Manzanar – 28 in a series – “He broke free of the lethargy that had nailed him to our steps for months.”

August 26th, 2019

“A FEW DAYS BEFORE WE LEFT MANZANAR PAPA decided that since we had to go, we might as well leave in style, and by our own volition. He broke free of the lethargy that had nailed him to our steps for months. He grabbed his Bismarck walking stick and took off, almost at a run, heading for Lone Pine to buy himself a car. Mama tried to talk him out of this.”

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