Book Talk by China-based Journalist Rob Schmitz

Dear CAFAM members,

CAFAM is proud to join Longfellow Books in presenting an evening with Rob Schmitz, acclaimed China reporter with NPR’s Marketplace.

Where: Longfellow Books, One Monument Way, Portland

When: Wednesday, July 20th, 7-8 pm

Free admission

Schmitz will talk about modern China as described in his new book, Street of Eternal Happiness: Big City Dreams Along a Shanghai Road. It’s an “unforgettable portrait of individuals who hope, struggle, and grow along a single street cutting through the heart of China’s most exhilarating metropolis, from one of the most acclaimed broadcast journalists reporting on China today.”

We are hoping for a good turnout of CAFAM members at the talk. We are planning a CAFAM lecture series in the near future, so this is a good start!

*Also: Tune in to Maine Public Radio’s call-in show “Maine Calling” on the same day to hear Rob Schmitz discuss his book. Joining him on the panel will be CAFAM newsletter co-editor Connie Zhu and Bowdoin professor Christopher Heurlin.

What: MPBN radio, “Maine Calling”

When: Wednesday, July 10th, 1-2 pm
