The Oakland Asian Cultural Center and Eastwind Books of Berkeley presents, a Book Talk with Author Edmund S. Wong Growing Up in San Francisco’s Chinatown: Boomer Memories from Noodle Rolls to Apple Pie.
Chinese American baby boomers who grew up within the twenty-nine square blocks of San Francisco’s Chinatown lived in two worlds.
Elders implored the younger generation to retain ties with old China even as the youth felt the pull of a future sheathed in red, white and blue. It was a childhood immersed in two vibrant cultures and languages, shaped by both.
Author Edmund S. Wong brings to life Chinatown’s heart and soul from its golden age.
Doors open: 6:30pm
