Join Paul Yee for an Evening of Storytelling

Join Tradewind’s author Paul Yee for an intimate evening of storytelling at the Chinatown Storytelling Centre in Vancouver. This event is part of a special exhibition at the centre titled Our Journey Continues: 100 Years After the Chinese Immigration Act. As the exhibition catelogue describes, “this exhibit is a testament to the multigenerational families who, like all Canadian settlers, pursued their dreams and turned grievance into success.”

Paul will be there on Saturday, November 25th to share his reflections on his origins in Spalding, Saskatchewan, and his childhood in Vancouver’s Chinatown.
