Author Julia Flynn Siler in conversation with author and San Francisco  Chronicle columnist Vanessa Hua.

Julia Flynn Siler latest book, "The White Devil's Daughters: The Fight Against Slavery in San Francisco's Chinatown", is a revelatory history of the trafficking of young Asian girls in San Francisco during the first hundred years of Chinese immigration (1848-1943). An eye-opening account of the valiant work of a handful of Christian women against the enslavement of Asian girls in San Francisco’s Chinatown from the mid-1870s well into the next century. An accessible, well-written, riveting tale of a dismal, little-known corner of American history.

This event is co-sponsored by the 1990 Institute, educating the next generation of Americans and Chinese to broaden and increase mutual understanding. Books will be available at the event. Sponsored by the Friends of the San Francisco Public Library
