FANHS Monterey Bay recently published Shadows on Main Street. Named after the essay by Jess Tabasa, it contains twelve memoirs by members and friends of the Monterey Bay Chapter of FANHS.
In the introduction, Richard Villegas (President of the Monterey Bay Chapter) writes: “This book contains stories that we recall as children growing up in Salinas and the surrounding areas. Time and age cause memories to fade, but these stories are what the members recall in their younger days. In reading these stories, I hope you can say ‘I remember that place,’ ‘my mom or dad did that,’ and ‘it was fun back in the day’; but, most of all, I hope the stories put a smile on your face.”
Come to the 10th Annual Salinas Chinatown Asian Festival on April 29, and pick up your copy of Shadows on Main Street at the Filipino Community Center on Calle Cebu Street!
