Chinatown Pretty

Description

"Chinatown Pretty features beautiful portraits and heartwarming stories of trend-setting seniors across six Chinatowns. Andria Lo and Valerie Luu have been interviewing and photographing Chinatown's most fashionable elders on their blog and Instagram, Chinatown Pretty, since 2014. Chinatown Pretty is a signature style worn by pòh pohs (grandmas) and gùng gungs (grandpas) everywhere—but it's also a life philosophy, mixing resourcefulness, creativity, and a knack for finding joy even in difficult circumstances. Chinatown Pretty shares nuggets of philosophical wisdom and personal stories about immigration and Chinese American culture." - Publisher description  This book has won the 2021 CALA Best Book Award (Categroy: Non-fiction).
