The Friends of the Library will meet in the Stribling Room of the Mason County Library on Tuesday, November 13, at 5:30 p.m. Local author Scott Zesch will be the speaker. His most recent book, The Chinatown War: Chinese Los Angeles and the Massacre of 1871 was published by Oxford University Press and released earlier this year. Though the events, racial riots, and lynching described in this book occurred over 140 years ago, the topic remains relevant because of today’s concerns about immigrants and cheap labor. Zesch’s previous books include Alamo Heights, a historical novel, and The Captured, an account of nine children abducted by Native Americans on the Texas frontier.
After the talk by Scott Zesch, Friends of the Library will hold a business meeting followed by a reception to honor departing board members. Refreshments will be served.
All three of Scott Zesch’s books will be available for sale during this event.
