Event description

Description

CCC, Chinese Historical Society of America (CHSA), Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA), Center for Asian American Media (CAAM), Advancing Justince - Asian Law Caucus, 1990 Institute, Asian Pacific Islander Legal Outreach, East Wind Books and other community partners invite you to the Book Launch Party for Helen Zia's new nonfiction book, Last Boat out of Shanghai. Zia is a local writer, reporter and activist whose writings focus on LGBTQ, Women's and Human Rights. Last Boat out of Shanghai is based on the "dramatic, real-life stories of a generation caught up in the mass rush out of Shanghai in the wake of China's 1949 Communist Revolution" that parallel the struggles faced by emigrants today. Zia weaves together the stories of four young Shanghai residents who wrestled with the decision to abandon everything for an uncertain life as refugees in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the U.S.

The release party features a talk with Helen Zia, followed by a Q&A, a book signing, and the opportunity to purchase your copy of Last Boat out of Shanghai.
