Movie matches Oregon Reads selection

Gather the family for a free movie at the Ashland library.

"Family Gathering," a documentary about the book "Stubborn Twig," will be shown at 2 p.m. in the Gresham Room at the library, 410 Siskiyou Blvd.

The book, which tells the story of Masuo Yasui, a Hood River Japanese-American businessman who was interned during World War II along with tens of thousands of other Japanese Americans, is featured in Oregon Reads 2009.

The film adds to the history from that period with interviews with the Yasui family, photos, home movies and newsreels.

Call the library at 774-6996 for details.
