Sachiko

Caren Stelson is the author of SACHIKO: A Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Survivor’s Story and other works for children and young adults. SACHIKO tells the true story of six-year-old Sachiko Yasui’s survival of the Nagasaki atomic bomb on August 9, 1945, and the heartbreaking and lifelong aftermath. Having conducted extensive interviews with Sachiko Yasui, Caren Stelson chronicles Sachiko’s long journey toward peace. This special book offers readers a remarkable new perspective on the final moments of World War II, the fifty years that followed, and the courage it took for one woman to tell her story of nuclear war and peace. SACHIKO has won numerous literary awards, among them longlisted for National Book Award, the 2017 ALA Sibert Honor Book for Information, and the Jane Addams Book Award for Older Children.
