#26 – Hiroshima and Cherry Blossoms w/ Author Kathleen Burkinshaw

In this episode, we interview Kathleen Burkinshaw, author of the middle-grade novel, The Last Cherry Blossom, a story of a young Japanese girl living in Hiroshima during World War II when the atomic bomb was dropped. Based partially on the story of her own mother (who survived the bombing of Hiroshima), Kathleen chats about her personal reasons for writing the story, as well as her hopes for a future without nuclear weapons.
