Online: The Seattle Public Library Foundation Presents Ron Chew: My Unforgotten Seattle @ Online (see listing)
Nov 17 @ 6:00 pm – 7:10 pm

Join us to celebrate the release of local luminary Ron Chew’s new memoir. Registration is required.

Click here to register.

This event is presented by The Seattle Public Library Foundation.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Third-generation Seattleite, historian, journalist, and museum visionary Ron Chew spent more than five decades fighting for Asian American and social justice causes in Seattle. In this deeply personal memoir, he documents the tight-knit community he remembers, describing small family shops, chop suey restaurants, and sewing factories now vanished. He untangles the mystery of his extended family’s journey to America during the era of the Chinese Exclusion Act. Intimate profiles of his parents—a waiter and garment worker—and leaders like Bob Santos, Ruth Woo, Al Sugiyama, Roberto Maestas, and Kip Tokuda are set against the familiar backdrop of local landmarks such as Sick’s Stadium, Kokusai Theatre, Shorey’s Bookstore, Higo Variety Store, Hong Kong Restaurant, and Chubby & Tubby. He highlights Seattle’s unsung champions in the fight for racial inclusion, political empowerment, American ethnic studies, Asian American arts, Japanese American redress, and revitalization of the Chinatown-International District. Chew himself led a successful campaign to transform a historic hotel into the Wing Luke Museum’s permanent home.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER:

Ron Chew served as editor of the International Examiner and as executive director of the Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience. His books include Reflections of Seattle’s Chinese Americans: The First 100 Years and Remembering Silme Domingo and Gene Viernes: The Legacy of Filipino American Labor Activism.

To our amazing volunteers, we can’t wait to gather for full service dining next year!

For now, we invite you to breathe deeply into this pause and come on by to pick up a meal for you, a friend, family member or a neighbor.

We are accepting, and would truly appreciate, donations:

~ Reusable grocery/tote bags

~ Masks

~ Hand sanitizer

We hope to see all of you as we navigate this different kind of year ~ even if it is just a drive by with a honk and wave!

Brought you to by Seeds of Love, the Haggerty Family, and from the generous donations of our neighbors and community.
