Event Description

Join the Arizona Historical Society and Jimmy June Wong on Wednesday, March 24 from 6:00-7:00 pm as he talks about his new book Never Alone: The Bumpy Road from China to the American Dream. The son of immigrant parents, Dr. Wong’s mother Dew Yu Wong and her husband June Wong moved to the small town in 1915 when they bought the American Laundry. Their family ran several businesses and raised 9 children on Flagstaff’s Southside. Dr. Wong will share his family’s experience immigrating to America along with funny and poignant stories from his childhood growing up in Flagstaff. Dew Yu Wong is one of the people featured in the Resilience: Women in Flagstaff’s Past and Present exhibit, on display at Pioneer Museum and online. Never Alone is available for purchase and curbside pickup at the Pioneer Museum gift shop in Flagstaff. Retail price $24.95. Call 928-774-6272 to reserve your copy.
