MAY MONTHLY MEETING, FRIDAY, MAY 19 at 7 PM : BOOK SIGNING BY DR. JEAN LAU CHIN

Volume II of Who are the Cantonese Chinese: NYC Chinatown During the 1940’s – 1960’s by Dr. Jean Lau Chin has just been published. 

Three years ago, Dr. Chin, our member, had a huge turnout at the Center for the signing of her Volume I of the above title. So many attendees bought the book, which was the first definitive book of its kind for that period of time in New York City’s Chinatown.

Dr. Chin will be returning to the Center with copies of Volume II in which many of you are in.  This long awaited book has stories of the lives of those who grew up during the 1940’s -1960’s. Contributing memories and stories of their youth in Chinatown in Volume II are our Center members, Helen Chin, Bob Wong, Patty Chow, Rose Lem, Tommy Ong, Sham Gee, Peter Gong, Emma Don, Ann Chan, Nancy Leong and many others! Dr. Chin may also bring some videos of those interviewed. So be sure to save the date and join us at the Center for a great evening of renewal of friendships and memories while learning what Chinatown was like in those years gone by! The book is over 400 pages. The soft cover, black/white is $25.00 per copy; color copy is $85.00, discounted to $75.00 per copy. Volume I will also be available for sale.
