There was a packed house at Bob & Carol’s for FAREWELL, MY BEIJING, Chi’s memoir. After we all got there Chi rose and recapped her story, with Richard participating.
They brought the book back to life, and added a lot to the memories she shared. I’m glad her family pulled it out of her. Like she said about her son goading her into Tennis the book wasn’t her idea. With so much travel, and a difficult journey it was, there were many interactions, and difficulties, it seemed like a very interesting life.
Chi even brought a new recipe for some cookies. It was fun to talk to her, and Richard. She even signed my copy of the book. Bob & Carol hosted us like royalty, with goodies, Sparkling wine, and Red and white wine too!
(I intend to return to blog about the last few books we read in the club, which I have neglected. Probably the best book I listened to on CD recently was L.A. Requiem, by Robert Crais.)
