Join author Lauren Hilgers for a community conversation about immigration, political activism, democracy, and a journey from contemporary China to the United States. Her book, Patriot Number one, follows a village revolutionary from Southern China and his family through a byzantine network of employment agencies, language schools, underground asylum brokers, amd illegal dormitories, which Flushing, New York's Chinese community relies on for survival. Sponsored by the Cabrillo College History Department and friends of the Aptos and Capitola libraries.
