May Q. Wong: "A Cowherd in Paradise" - Sat Jul 26

Join May Q. Wong as she reads from her memoir, "A Cowherd in Paradise: From China to Canada". All are welcome Saturday, July 26, 3 pm to 4:30 pm at Mayne Island Library.

Her memoir is the remarkable true story of Wong Guey Dang and Jiang Tew Thloo. Married for over 50 years, they were forced to spend 25 years apart because of Canada' exclusionary immigration laws. Ah Thloo survived natural disasters, wars and revolutions in China, while Ah Dang overcame discrimination in Canada to become a successful Montreal restaurateur.

This is a moving tale of one couple's search for love, family and forgiveness. "Required reading for anyone who cares about citizenship and human rights."
