The Mayor's Book Club selection for spring is Jan Jarboe Russell's study of US internment camps, The Train to Crystal City.  As part of our learning experience for the book, we'll chat by Skype with Heidi Gurcke Donald,  a former internee of Crystal City.  Heidi is also a founder of the German-American Internee Coalition and the author of We Were Not the Enemy:  Remembering the United States' Latin-American Civilian Internment Program of World War II.  This event is free and open to the public.
