All Around Fiction Book Club will discuss The Train to Crystal City

The All Around Fiction Book Club will discuss the 2016 Gulf Coast Reads selection, The Train to Crystal City by Jan Jarboe Russell on Monday October 17th at 2:00 pm. 

During World War II, trains delivered thousands of civilians from the United States and Latin America to Crystal City, Texas. The trains carried Japanese, German, and Italian immigrants and their American-born children. The only family internment camp during the war, Crystal City was the center of a government prisoner exchange program called "quiet passage." Hundreds of prisoners in Crystal City were exchanged for other more ostensibly important Americans--diplomats, businessmen, soldiers, and missionaries--behind enemy lines in Japan and Germany.
