Interview: Masumoto Books Detail Generational Transitions On The Farm, Yosemite

Hey Day Books

Next Thursday Fresno art lovers will celebrate the city’s galleries and art spaces with the monthly first-Thursday event known as Art Hop. But lovers of the printed word will have another opportunity that night to meet some of the valley’s most insightful and talented authors at an event being billed as “Bookhop.”

Among the authors who will be at Arte Americas for the event are David Mas Masumoto and Nikiko Masumoto. Together they have a new book about the generational transition now underway on their family farm titled “Changing Seasons, A Father, A Daughter, A Family Farm.” That’s in addition to another new book by Mas Masumoto, titled “A Sense of Yosemite” which is a collaboration with photographer Nancy Robbins. Both Mas and Nikiko joined us on Valley Edition to talk about their new books and the event on Thursday December 1.
