Gulf Coast Reads: Read It & Eat It Book Club - The Train to Crystal City
Join us for a lively discussion of "The Train to Crystal City" by Jan Jarboe Russell.
"From 1942 to 1945, secret government trains delivered United States civilians regularly to Crystal City, a small desert town at the southern tip of Texas. The trains carried Japanese, German, and Italian immigrants and their American-born children. The vast majority were loyal to the United States deeply, were never charged with any crime, and did not understand why they had been forced to leave their homes.
