Description

Lemon Drops: A Bittersweet Memoir traces the journey of author Frances Chin's mother as she travels from China to San Francisco in 1935 as a "picture bride" in an arranged marriage. She had five daughters with the husband she barely knew and rarely saw, thus was left to raise five daughters alone in a strange new land. After the family moved to Oakland, as each of Frances' two older sisters turned 13, they left home to live and work for rich white families as "mother's helpers." When Frances turned 13, she followed in their footsteps. Frances has written this book as a tribute to her beloved mother in appreciation for all of her sacrifices and hard work.

Presentation will be followed by Q&A and Meet & Greet with Frances
