Lemon Drops: An Author Talk presented by Francis Chin

“Author Frances Chin offers an intimate look into the personal journey that is recounted in her memoir.

Lemon Drops: A Bittersweet Memoir traces the journey of author Frances Chin’s mother as she travels from China to San Francisco in 1935 in an arranged marriage. After living in Chinatown – Frances’ mother moved to Oakland and raised five daughters. As Frances and her two older sisters each turned 13 – one by one they left home to live and work as “”mother’s helpers”” for rich white families in the neighboring city Piedmont. Frances kept secrets from her mom of growing up as a teenager – until now – when she realized all that her mom had done for the sake of her daughters.”
