“A Bowl Full of Peace” Book Launch and Rememberance of Nagasaki, Japan in WWII

Landmark Center is honored to partner with award-winning author Caren Stelson, and the St. Paul-Nagasaki Sister City Committee (SPNSCC), in celebrating the launch of Stelson’s new children’s book, “A Bowl Full of Peace.” The book tells the moving and beautiful true story of a symbol of survival, hope, and peace for one family in Nagasaki after the atom bombing of the city – told through the eyes of a child survivor. Landmark Center will host an exhibition of the book’s illustrations, as well as an ancillary exhibition about the Hiroshima-Nagasaki bombings that will run August 4 through September 30 in the 2nd Floor Galleria. Visitors may see the exhibit by timed reservation only. Groups are limited to 10 or fewer guests. Masks must be worn, and will be provided if necessary. Call 651-292-3063 to make a reservation.

On Tuesday, August 4 at 12:00pm, via ZOOM, Landmark Center will host a virtual reading by Stelson, as well as a discussion by JoAnn Blatchley of the SPNSCC, who will provide context for the book’s story, and offer a remembrance of the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Nagasaki. The virtual event is free, and viewers may log in using the information below. There will be an opportunity to ask questions after the program, using the “chat” written feature on the ZOOM platform.
