Joy Kogawa House information
Saved from demolition in 2006 by a hardy band of literary volunteers and the deep pockets of the Land Conservancy Trust (funds are still required to renovate the property), the modest bungalow where celebrated Japanese Canadian poet and novelist Kogawa grew up now has a writer-in-residence program and a drive to become a pilgrimage spot for local and visiting bookworms. There's a calendar of varied readings, workshops and events on its website.
