Local journalist Leslie Helm’s talk “Half Hidden Whole” gathered about 60 attendees at the Nagomi Tea House in the International District last Saturday featuring his latest publication “Yokohama Yankee” and his personal family history.

Helm shared 150 years of family history that took place in Germany, Japan and the United States, and described how his family lived during momentous events such as World War II.

His book is available in both English and Japanese at Seattle Kinokuniya.
