Revisit Asian History with Local Author

Jun 27, 2017 03:37PM

Carole Louie is the author of the recently released book, Conversations of a Hungry Ghost: Memoir of a Reluctant Medium, a true story about overcoming her fear of ghosts in order to talk with her father’s spirit and learn about her Chinese heritage. Louie will appear at a book signing at the United States Chinese Peoples Friendship Association (USCPFA) Summer Picnic on July 8 and at the USCPFA Hungry Ghost Festival on September 2.

        She states, “This book was written in memory of my father, Louie Hung On, my grandfather, Louie Mow and my great-grandfather, Louie Fat. As merchants, they were more fortunate than many Chinese who came to America. However, when I read the documents from the National Archives, I witnessed how they were treated. One hundred thirty-six years after my great-grandfather came to this country, I remember.”
