Coming up on ‘Bookwatch
Kathleen Burkinshaw talks about “The Last Cherry Blossom” on “North Carolina Bookwatch” Sunday, June 17, at 11 a.m. and Thursday, June 21 at 5 p.m. with guest host Randall Kenan.
The book offers young readers insight into the Japanese culture, mindset and daily life during WWII before the bomb was dropped — something that has not been done before.
Based on the author’s mother’s firsthand experience surviving the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, the book hopes to warn readers of the immense damage nuclear war can bring, while reminding them that the “enemy” in any war is often not so different from ourselves.
