Shizue Seigel

Shizue Seigel is a third-generation Japanese American writer and visual artist who has lived in San Francisco since 1958. She loves the city’s ever-changing diversity, but misses the Fillmore, the old Mission and Japantown, fog and foghorns, working docks, the Belt Line. Her books include In Good Conscience: Supporting Japanese Americans during the Internment, Century of Change: the Memoirs of Nellie Nakamura, Distillations: Meditations on the Japanese American Experience, and Standing Strong: Fillmore and Japantown. Her poetry and prose have been published in numerous anthologies and journals, and recognized by the National League of American PEN Women. Her work is archived at UC Santa Barbara's California Ethnic and Multicultural Archives, and solo exhibitions of her visual art include Laramie: Mapping Myths and Realities, Double Vision: A Celebration of Hybridity and Ephemeral Allure; Eternal Struggle at UC Santa Barbara. Her latest project, Endangered Species, will be out in 2018.
