October 1, 2015, Thursday morning, Reading Gordon Chin

I always love it when I find readers who are reading about the big issues of the day, like the reader from September 19th who was reading about migrant issues, and this reader, who was reading about how neighborhoods have responded to gentrification.

In the Mission District 
She is reading Building Community, Chinatown Style, by Gordon Chin. She said that what Chinatown has faced can be considered when dealing with gentrification in the SoMa and Mission. She said it wasn't the same, of course, as in Chinatown, but it can be learned from.

One of her favorite authors that she's been reading lately is Jhumpa Lahiri.
