That's why you should join in with all the very cool San Franciscans participating in One City One Book: San Francisco Reads this fall.
Presented by the San Francisco Public Library, One City One Book is the city's first citywide book club, bringing readers together to discuss a single book. The book selection, China Boy, by San Francisco native Gus Lee, is about the life of Kai Ting, a young Chinese American boy growing up in the San Francisco Panhandle during the 1950s. Boxing, bullies, and bravery abound in this intense & poignant novel, which shines a light on a fascinating slice of San Francisco history.
Make China Boy your book club's next selection, or join in one of the many discussions and special events (including author appearances at the Koret Auditorium, Litquake, Books Inc., & more) taking place during September and October 2005. City Guides will also be leading special China Boy walking tours of the Panhandle district - you won't want to miss them!
