DUQ Reads is an NEA-funded project hosted at Gumberg Library revolving around When the Emperor was Divine, a novel about the experience of a Japanese-American family forced out of their home and sent to live in a Japanese internment camp during World War II.  You can learn more about DUQ Reads here.
