U.S. China People's Friendship Association Seminar, Washington, D. C. April 26-27

      I'm looking forward to speaking at the U. S. China People's Friendship National Seminar this week in Washington, D. C.  I get to speak early on the first day, so I can then enjoy lunch and the rest of the activities on the 2 day event. The organization has nicely arranged some wonderful touristy and cultural events for the participants.
    The theme of my talk will be "How U.S. China Relations Affect the Lives of Chinese in America" and I'll use my 4 books as illustrative evidence.
