ACP recently received word that Terminal Island: Lost Communities of Los Angeles Harbor took third place for the Westerners International 2015 “Best Book” Award.


Written by Geraldine Knatz and Naomi Hirahara, designed by Amy Inouye, with photo editing by J. Eric Lynxwiler, Terminal Island first chronicles the bohemians and scientists who lived on the island in the early years of the twentieth century; then comes the tragic story of Japanese-Americans who inhabited the island until World War II forced their evacuation--a story that needed to be told. In 2011, Westerners International awarded ACP’s Ernest Marquez third place for his book Noir Afloat: Tony Cornero and the Notorious Gambling Ships of Southern California.
