Join the Princeton Club of Northern California (PCNC) in this virtual event featuring Jasmin Darznik (PhD *07), professor and New York Times bestselling author of the new novel The Bohemians, featured on this summer’s New York Times’ list of the best summer books and Oprah’s list of the year’s best historical fiction.

Using rare photographs, Jasmin will narrate the story of San Francisco’s 1920s Jazz Age and the local writers, photographers, and artists who made this one of the City’s most fascinating eras. We’ll also look into how artists challenged the era’s virulent anti-Asian sentiment and get a behind-the-scenes understanding of how Chinese Americans contributed to the politics and culture of early 20th century San Francisco. There will be a live Q & A session following the presentation and all attendees will have a chance to win a signed copy of The Bohemians and Gold Mountain, Big City, an illustrated book about San Francisco’s Chinatown.

Please RSVP by July 8th for Zoom link.
