Inspired by true events, this is the story of an American girl – a Japanese-American girl, with an indomitable spirit, a positive and infectious personality, and a tremendous love of country and a sense of patriotism. Trapped in the time of the fear and prejudice during World War II, one lovable child of deported immigrant Japanese parents and adopted by an affluent and influential American couple, battled the odds and the challenges that all people of Japanese descent faced during those trying, war-torn times of the 40s. A historical epic that follows Japanese internees into Manzanar, “Lisa Patterson” is also a heart wrenching love story that plays out like an American opera, transcending not only the prejudices of its day, but the limits of time. Writers: Eric Nemoto, Jerry Wayne. Pages: 120.
