The Salinas Californian recently published a review by Joanna Brauer of our book, Shadows on Main Street.  Excerpt:

“Shadows on Main Street,” Memoirs, Vol. 1., by The Filipino National Historical Society, Monterey Bay Chapter, Edited by Jean Vengua, published by My Express Printer, Salinas, available through FANHS; call 831-751-3024.

This slim publication is an appealing selection of vignettes describing the Filipino experience in Monterey County communities dating back 100 years.

The ten contributors present some family histories of the “forgotten Asian Americans.”

—-Joanna Brauer
