Treasures 3 Stories & Art by Students in Japan & Oregon
collected by Chris Weber. Oregon Students Writing and Art Foundation, 1994.
Portland teacher Chris Weber asked students in Oregon and Japan to submit stories, poems, and artwork based on real-life experiences for an anthology to be published in both English and Japanese, then sifted through the several thousand submissions to select those that offered particularly vivid glimpses of each culture's perceptions, values, and way of life. After having each of the selected stories and poems translated into the other language, he compiled them with selections of artwork into this remarkable volume, published in nearly identical Japanese and English editions. The book received a Skipping Stones Magazine Honor Award.
