"The Children of Chinatown" book talk by author Wendy Rouse Jorae on February 27, 2:30-4pm

Join us for a book talk and slide presentation with author Wendy Rouse Jorae. In her new book The Children of Chinatown: Growing Up Chinese American in San Francisco, 1850-1920 she challenges long-held notions of early Chinatown as a bachelor community by showing that families - and particularly children - played important roles in its daily life.

Wendy Rouse Jorae teaches history at St. Francis College Preparatory School in Sacramento, at the University of California, Davis, and at California State University-Sacramento. She became interested in Chinese American history while studying history and archaeology at Sacramento State University and worked as an archaeologist for several years conducting excavations on Chinese mining sites in Northern California.

A book sale and signing will follow this event.
