A year mistake in “Thirty Minutes Over Oregon”

I found a goof midway through my book Thirty Minutes Over Oregon: A Japanese Pilot’s World War II Story (I wish they’d add back page numbers to picture books!).

A sentence reads as follows: “And the residents of Brookings largely forgot about their close call—until 1962.”

It should be 1961. (Nobuo visited in 1962, but the town hatched the idea and sent the invite letter in 1961.)

This will be corrected in future printings.
