Chinese New Year at da Shop

It was such an honor and delight to be part of the January Chinese New Year celebrations at da Shop, Honolulu’s fabulous independent bookshop, where I presented Remembering Shanghai to a great audience.



We were also treated to a Chinese New Year blessing by the Chinese Lion Dance Association – including an enchanting lion cub dance by the children – and Mozaic Paper pop-up, and live calligraphy by Ina Chang. It was wonderful to see the excellent turnout!

It was a great way to get into the Chinese New Year spirit – a very happy Year of the Pig to everyone!
