Book Discussion Group
On Monday, June 20, at 1:30 pm the group will discuss Jeffrey L. Staley’s
book, Gum Moon: A Novel of San Francisco Chinatown. Gum Moon, Cantonese for ‘Golden Gate,’ indicates the setting for most of this illuminating novel about the slavery of Chinese girls in San Francisco from late in the 19th century to the early 20th century. It follows Chun, later called Maud, from her sale at the age of three in 1898 to her early teens. The group meets in The Bernice Nailen Memorial Library. All are welcome. The Book discussion group will not meet in July and August.
