Student media[ edit ] The school newspaper, the Tropolitan commonly referred to as "The Trop"is located on the bottom floor of Wallace Hall. It is a weekly publication, written and produced entirely by students. The Palladium is located in adjacent offices in the same building. Troy University Television broadcasts three live entirely student-produced newscasts twice daily.
Ten years of journalism helped immeasurably in learning how to write. Determined to make a living as a writer, I also wrote for a variety of mediums: I had never considered writing children's books, but inmy first picture book, "Baseball Saved Us," was published, followed later by "Heroes," "Passage to Freedom: After that, one has to know why they write.
I have done presentations about my books around the country, mostly at schools. I stress that I was born in Seattlemy parents were born there, that my grandparents are the ones from Japan.
Yet, I'll be asked by a student afterward: Do you know if Chiune Sugihara kept a diary?
I don't know about that, but I kind of doubt it since he was a very busy man. His wife, Yukiko, might have since she wrote a book on her family's history called "Visas for Life.
Do you know if Chiune Sugihara's other children are still alive today? Chiaki is still alive; Haruki died shortly after the family's return to Japan after the war. How old is Hiroki Sugihara?
Hiroki Sugihara passed away in at age Did you watch any films to get information also? At the time I was writing this book, there were no films about Consul Sugihara and his family. There was a dramatic short film that focused on Consul Sugihara issuing the visas, and another documentary on Consul Sugihara.
Have you ever talked to Hiroki Sugihara personally? Yes, I first met him inwhen he came to Seattle and spoke at a synagogue about his father.
While researching and writing "Passage to Freedom," I interviewed Hiroki over the phone when he lived in San Francisco. I talked to him at different times, and the total interviewing time amounted to about three hours.
I wanted to get the story more from his point of view. Have you written any other books related to World War II? Have you met Chiune Sugihara before? No, I never have. Sugihara passed away in I wish I had, for that would have been a huge honor.
I did meet a "Sugihara Survivor" in Houston, Texas.
She was three years old when Consul Sugihara issued her family the visa to leave Lithuania. She showed me the actual visa; I held history in my hands! How long did you have to talk to Hiroki Sugihara to get the full story of "Passage to Freedom"? As I answered in Question 5, I called Hiroki long distance from my home in Seattle, interviewing him three different times, which amounted to a total of about three hours.
How long did it take you to write "Passage to Freedom"? About three months, when usually I would take around six months to write a picture book story. That means writing usually three major drafts of the story. Even though "Passage to Freedom" is a lot longer and more complicated story than my other picture books, I had less to time to write it.
I had to get it done in less time if the book was to be published by a certain time.
You will be amazed at what you can do when there is a deadline! Were you in Japan when you wrote the book?
No, I have never been to the country of Japan. I was born in SeattleWAas were my parents. My grandparents were immigrants from Japan, and the first grandparent that came to America arrived in I have always liked stories in any form:Dr.
