SCCL Author Talk with William Gee Wong

  • 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
  • Central Park Library - Redwood Rm, 2635 Homestead Rd, Santa Clara, CA 95051

The Santa Clara City Library (SCCL) will present an Author Talk with William Gee Wong on May 11, 2024 at 1:00 pm. At this event, journalist and Oakland native William “Bill” Gee Wong will share insights from his newly published book Sons of Chinatown: A Memoir Rooted in China and America.

Wong's father entered the U.S. legally as the “son of a native,” despite having partially false papers. Sons of Chinatown is Wong’s evocative dual memoir of his and his father’s parallel experiences in America during the Chinese exclusion era and in the subsequent decades.

Wong's journalism work has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Oakland Tribune, and many others. As a journalist, Wong chronicled Asian American experiences while honoring Chinese American history and identity while facing discrimination.
